Sean Peay was nominated for the 2016 Smart CEO Circle of Excellence Award. “The Circle of Excellence finalists are shaping the future of Baltimore’s business community and ensuring the sustainability, safety and efficiency of our community for years to come,” says Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, President of SmartCEO. “We proudly recognize their successes and contributions, and we believe that their impact will make a difference for customers and clients across the nation.” The Circle of Excellence Awards program recognizes the region’s most accomplished CEOs for business excellence. Companies are nominated from all size and industry categories, public or private. Each year, an independent committee of local business leaders selects the winners based on industry impact, innovation and market leadership. Finalists are profiled in the November/December issue of SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at an awards reception in November, where category winners are announced live.
