Howard Bank Is Future 50 Winner for Seventh Year

Howard Bank has been named a Future 50 winner for the seventh year 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. The winners are "characterized by smart decisions, unlimited tenacity and more than a few instances of intense risk taking," according to the announcement of the awardees.

"It is an honor to be recognized once again by Smart CEO for our achievements in the Greater Baltimore business community," 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 us even prouder of the positive impact we have had on the communities we serve."

Howard Bank was recognized at the Baltimore SmartCEO Future 50 event Jan. 10, at the Hunt Valley Inn.

Scully is chair and one of the founding officers of Howard Bank and headed its organizing committee before the bank opened in 2004.
