Community service ‘part of the culture’ at McGladrey


McGladrey LLP, the leading U.S. provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, was recently named a recipient of the 2012 Mayor’s Business Recognition Award for demonstrating outstanding community service and other contributions through the firm’s Community Service Initiative, annual Volunteer Day and other outreach efforts that have significantly improved the city of Baltimore.

“McGladrey employees are dedicated to helping their local communities,” said Marty Brunk, Baltimore office managing partner with McGladrey. “At McGladrey, we understand the unique needs of each of the communities where our employees live and work.”

McGladrey was recognized for its ongoing Community Service Initiative, which encourages public service by providing employees with time each year for community service activities, and for the firm’s 2012 annual national Volunteer Day, benefitting the Parks & People Foundation.

The firm has sponsored similar events, including a fundraising campaign for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Baltimore, Inc, the Good Shepherd Center’s Angel’s Wish List Program, the Abilities Network Walk, the Salvation Army, monthly Jeans Day for designated charities, and numerous other volunteer activities. The McGladrey Community Service Initiative is coordinated by the firm’s Baltimore Culture Club, which focuses on developing employee engagement and team building in the local community.

“Community service is part of the culture of McGladrey,” said Matt Hemelt, Baltimore partner and chair of McGladrey’s Baltimore Culture Club Community Outreach Committee. “We are honored to be among the other award winners who are doing great work in Baltimore.”

Winners of the 2012 Mayor’s Award were honored at the Mayor’s Business Recognition Awards Luncheon, December 10, at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake joined the Baltimore Development Corporation and the Greater Baltimore Committee in presenting the awards.
