The Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC), Baltimore Development Corporation, and Baltimore Mayor’s Office recently unveiled the winners of the 49th Annual Mayor’s Business Recognition Awards. The awards recognize organizations that have made significant contributions to Baltimore’s quality of life while demonstrating leadership and commitment.
This year’s 14 winners are a diverse mix of businesses and organizations, including the B&O Railroad Museum, CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, and UnitedHealthcare. The GBC revamped the awards program to acknowledge companies and organizations that exemplify at least one of five categories: economic opportunity, ambassador for the Baltimore region, local investment, supporting safe and vibrant communities, and community redevelopment.
The GBC also introduced a multiyear agenda at its May annual meeting following its merger with the Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore. The agenda includes 12 initiatives aimed at supporting the organization’s role in shaping the region’s economic future and driving collective impact for over 500 businesses and organizations committed to the region. The initiatives primarily focus on economic opportunity, transportation and infrastructure, and collective impact.
The winners will be celebrated at an event on December 13 at the M&T Bank Exchange at the France Merrick Performing Arts Center in Baltimore.
