The winners of the 46th Annual Mayor’s Business Achievement Awards were recognized in a virtual ceremony on December 11, 2020.

“Today’s event is a yearly highlight for the Greater Baltimore Committee, the Mayor’s Office and the Baltimore Development Corporation as we honor those outstanding business leaders and their companies and organizations,” said Donald C. Fry, Greater Baltimore Committee President and CEO, in his introductions.

Before announcing the winners, Fry said, “The Mayor’s Business Award highlights companies and organizations whose leaders are not focused strictly on the ‘bottom line’ but those that acknowledge that contributing to the community and providing service outside their business’ core mission is vital to the success, health and morale of the city and to the people who live in Baltimore.”

In referring to the unique challenges presented by 2020, Fry added, “We have seen an incredible level of support and compassion from many businesses across our nation, state and Baltimore City. Many have opened their hearts and adjusted their business operations to help others that have struggled due to the unexpected impacts of the pandemic.”
