The Office of Economic Development, in partnership with Frederick Magazine, congratulated those who were named a 2019 Frederick County Top CEO at a reception March 21st at the Delaplaine. The event brought together top executives, founders, entrepreneurs and company owners of for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. These Top 50 CEOs reconnected with friends, made new business connections and spoke with like-minded leaders in the Frederick community.
It was an incredibly impressive group in attendance with long-time legends like John Fieseler, Betsy Day and Gary L. Rollins; self-funded techies like Jon-Mikel Bailey, Theresa Harrison and Nick Damoulakis; visionaries from some of our largest organizations including Tom Kleinhanzl, Dr. Andrea Chapdelaine and Chris Colville; and roll-up-your-sleeves entrepreneurs like Dr. Scott Barao and David Hawkins Jr.
Frederick’s Top 50 CEO publication recognizes the top business leaders in the county – from large corporations and non-profits to small family-owned businesses. This list is about leadership qualities, inspiring stories of perseverance, and development of dynamic business models that generate results. Each month, the OED blog will feature 4 CEOs and share their stories and answers to questions about their leadership styles, inspiring leaders, and even what they love to do for fun in Frederick County! Visit www.discoverfrederickmd.com/news and select the “Top 50 Frederick” category.
