On January 23, 2014, more than 500 local executives joined SmartCEO in celebrating Baltimore’s fastest-growing companies at the Baltimore SmartCEO Future 50 Awards ceremony held at the Hunt Valley Inn.

Can you guess if Towne Park received a Future 50 award?  Of course Towne Park was recognized, taking home the Blue Chip Award!  With a basketball theme – appropriate with NBA Commissioner David Stern retiring this month – Towne Park Founder & CEO Jerry South dished and swished his way through the crowd like a vintage Magic Johnson to accept his award.  You can find photos of Jerry, along with all of the other well-deserving recipients, here.

The Future 50 winners are chosen based on a three-year average of employee and revenue growth. The 2014 Baltimore Future 50 winners collectively generated $2.3 billion in annual revenue, experienced a 34.8% average three-year revenue growth and employed 14,045 individuals.
