Howard Bank Is Future 50 Winner for Fifth Straight Year

Howard Bank has been named a Future 50 winner for the fifth year in a row by Baltimore SmartCEO Magazine.

The magazine’s Future 50 companies represent the top 50 local growth companies, based on employee and revenue growth over the last three years.  To qualify, a business must be at least three years old and typically not older than 10 years.  The winners “represent the future of the region’s economy and are exemplary leaders in business,” according to the announcement of the awardees. 

“It is always an honor to be recognized by Smart CEO and the Greater Baltimore community for our achievements,” Howard Bank president and CEO Mary Ann Scully noted.  “However, the fact that our growth comes  at a time when so many companies  have been forced to  pull back  makes this achievement  even more gratifying and we are proud that our growth represents investment in our community”

Howard Bank will be recognized at the Baltimore SmartCEO Future 50 event, scheduled to take place Jan. 6, at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel.

Scully is chair and one of the founding officers of Howard Bank and headed its organizing committee before the bank opened in 2004. It now has branches in the Village of Hickory Ridge in Columbia, on Snowden River Parkway in Ellicott City, on Johns Hopkins Road in Maple Lawn and at the intersection of Route 40 and Centennial Lane in Ellicott City. It also has a branch on Annapolis Exchange Parkway in Annapolis.
