Baltimore, Md., (December 16, 2019) — The Daily Record has selected Thomas S. Bozzuto, Chairman and Co-Founder of The Bozzuto Group, as a 2019 Icon Honors recipient.

Established in 2017, Icon Honors recognizes Maryland business leaders, over the age of 60, for their notable success and demonstration of strong leadership within and outside their fields. The honorees have moved their businesses and the state of Maryland forward by growing jobs and making a difference in the community.

To be eligible for Icon Honors, honorees must have a long-standing commitment to the Maryland business community and significant professional accomplishments through innovation and leadership. Honorees must also be champions of their industries and demonstrate a sustained commitment to community service. They may be in the workforce or retired and must hold or have held senior management-level positions with significant authority in decision-making for their organization.

“This year’s Icon Honors recipients have left an indelible mark on their chosen fields. They have the vision to see what is meaningful and the drive and determination to achieve those goals,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “In addition, they have lifted up their colleagues through mentoring and displayed selfless community service. The Daily Record is pleased to honor them.”

The Icon Honors awards will be presented Dec. 16 at a reception starting at 4:30 p.m. at The Center Club, 100 Light Street in Baltimore. Winners will be profiled in a special publication that will be inserted into the Dec. 17 issue of The Daily Record and available online at www.TheDailyRecord.com.
