Fourteen businesses named 2017 Mayor’s Business Recognition Awards winners

Fourteen businesses were presented with 15 awards at the 43rd Annual Mayor’s Business Recognition Awards. The annual awards event, which is presented by the Greater Baltimore Committee, the Baltimore Development Corporation and the Mayor’s Office, honors businesses for their outstanding corporate leadership, commitment to community and dedication to improving the quality of life in Baltimore City.

The winners were celebrated at a December 6, 2017 luncheon at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel before more than 300 GBC members and guests.
