The Baltimore Brava! Awards, now in its sixth year of celebration, kicked off with a nomination process ending this past March. Across the Mid-Atlantic, over 200 nominations were collected for the program. To be considered for the Brava! Awards, nominees were required to be women executives leading companies that generated at least $1 million in revenue and who encourage local philanthropy, mentor fellow CEOs and set their companies on the path to tremendous growth. A dozen local business leaders of Greater Baltimore came together to form the Brava committee and to choose this year’s winners.
For a complete list of winners, please see below. For more information on the Brava winners, visit www.smartceo.com to view the digital edition of the July 2012 issue.
“The 2012 Brava winners are an impressive group of women doing exceptional things for our community and beyond. They are the leaders of today and tomorrow — a highly talented group that has the drive to do great things. I am sure we will continue to hear of their success for many, many years to come,” says Craig Burris, founder and president of SmartCEO magazine. “We are honored to recognize such a group of women and their accomplishments.”
The winners will be celebrated at the Baltimore Brava! Awards ceremony on July 11, 2012, at the American Visionary Art Museum. An expected sell-out event, 400 local C-level executives and guests will attend to celebrate the winners’ achievements. Past Brava winners, including members of the Baltimore Brava! Hall of Fame as well as potential inductees will also be in attendance. Five past Brava winners will be honored the evening of the event with their induction into the Brava! Hall of Fame. The event will kick off with a cocktail reception followed by the awards ceremony and a final toast to the women leaders of Greater Baltimore. Suit donations will also be accepted the evening of the event for SmartCEO’s Baltimore Brava! Awards charity partner, Success in Style, an organization which helps women and men in crisis in the Baltimore-Washington Corridor become self-sufficient and employed by providing suits and changing lives.
