Maryland International Business Leadership Awards

The premier annual event to honor the steadfast leaders in Maryland who are driving change in the state and around the world.

 

Last March, more than 300 business leaders from the Maryland business community – including the Governor of Maryland and 70+ presidents and CEOS – attended the annual awards ceremony. 

Do you know a deserving leader?

We are now accepting nominations for the 2025 International Business Leadership Awards. Among the 125+ winners since the first event was held in 1996 are leaders from Marriott International, Under Armour, Procter & Gamble, Lockheed Martin, and the United States Senate. See all the winners here. Nominees should be senior leaders who have a strong track record of business growth and a commitment to bettering Maryland.
