University of Baltimore President Kurt L. Schmoke has been named an inaugural Icon Honors recipient by The Daily Record, a multimedia news source based in Baltimore.
Established this year, Icon Honors recognizes Maryland business leaders, over the age of 60, for their notable success and demonstration of strong leadership within and outside their fields. The honorees have moved their businesses and the state of Maryland forward by growing jobs and making a difference in the community.
According to The Daily Record, to be eligible for Icon Honors, honorees must have a "long-standing commitment to the Maryland business community and significant professional accomplishments through innovation and leadership. Honorees must also be champions of their industries and demonstrate a sustained commitment to community service. They may be in the workforce or retired and must hold or have held senior management-level positions with significant authority in decision-making for their organization."
Winners were selected by the staff of The Daily Record.
"Icon Honors recipients' innovative leadership, commitment to mentoring and community engagement demonstrate why they deserve to be called icons in the Maryland business community," said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record.
