19 GBC members named to “Influential Marylanders” list

Nineteen GBC members are included in The Daily Record’s annual “Influential Marylanders” list, published Feb. 3.

A combination of The Daily Record’s editorial staff and online nominations created the pool for the 50 eventual Marylanders deemed most influential by the publication.

Five winners were chosen for each of the 10 categories: Civic leadership, communications, education, finance, freestyle (winners who do not fall into any of the other categories), law, philanthropy, real estate and technology.

GBC members were winners in every category, including four in philanthropy and three in education.

The Daily Record will present awards at an event March 27 in Cockeysville.
