Maryland is home to some of the most innovative and forward-thinking businesses in the world.

They have a positive impact on the economy, environment and culture in the state, Mid-Atlantic and other countries.

Once a year, the World Trade Center Institute (WTCI) and State of Maryland honor the people who make this possible – the steadfast leaders at companies, nonprofit organizations, governments and academic institutions who are driving change.

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

More than 300 leaders from the Maryland business community – including the Governor of Maryland and 70+ presidents and CEOS – attend the annual awards ceremony.
