The Daily Record named Linda Sue “Susie” Comer, our President and Treasurer, one of Maryland’s 2023 Most Admired CEOs.

Most Admired CEOs honors talented business CEOs, higher education leaders and nonprofit executive directors throughout Maryland whose leadership and vision are admired by those around them. A panel of judges selects these winners based on professional accomplishments, community service and the letters of references submitted by co-workers, board members and community leaders showing the CEO’s leadership and vision.

“This year’s Most Admired CEOs demonstrate that leadership matters. Many people are promoted into leadership roles, but only some have the emotional intelligence, focus, drive and compassion to become an admired leader,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, managing director of BridgeTower Media/The Daily Record. “The 2023 Most Admired CEOs are admired by their peers, their teams and the community. The Daily Record congratulates them on this honor.”
