Influential Marylanders was created in 2006 to honor people who have made significant impacts in their field and continue to be leaders in Maryland.

These individuals are selected by The Daily Record’s editors for their significant contributions to their respective fields and for their leadership in Maryland in the following areas: civic leadership, communications, education, finance, freestyle, general business, health care, law, philanthropy, real estate and technology. Elected officials are not eligible for this award because they are by nature influential. A listing of honorees is below.

Honorees who are named to the Influential Marylanders list three times are inducted into the Circle of Influence and no longer are eligible for the award.

Elected officials are not eligible because by their nature they are influential.
