The Daily Record has named Laura Pasternak, Principal, MarketPoint LLC, to its 2019 listing of Maryland’s Top 100 Women.
The Daily Record began Maryland’s Top 100 Women in 1996 to recognize outstanding achievements by women demonstrated through professional accomplishments, community leadership and mentoring.
Nominees were asked to complete an application outlining their educational and career history, professional and community involvement, corporate and nonprofit board memberships and mentoring experience. They were encouraged to submit letters of recommendation from those who are familiar with their accomplishments professionally, in the community and through mentoring.
“It was an honor to be nominated and a surprise to be named,” said Pasternak. “I hope there will be some way to use the appointment to benefit others in our community and elsewhere.”
“The past 19 years with MarketPoint have been extremely rewarding for me and afforded me the opportunity to understand so much more about the businesses, educational institutions, and nonprofit organizations in the region – and to visit other nations and cultures where our own learnings could be useful,” she continued. “I’m glad to have been a small part of Baltimore’s growth, and I’m grateful to the people who make this area special.”
A panel of business professionals and previous Maryland’s Top 100 Women honorees from throughout the state reviewed the final applications and selected this year’s honorees.
“This year’s Maryland’s Top 100 Women are leading companies, charting new territory and inspiring the next generation. They are truly outstanding role models for all of us,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “They show compassion and commitment to help others and to shape their communities. The Daily Record is honored to recognize their many achievements.”
The Maryland’s Top 100 Women awards celebration will be held on April 15 starting with a reception at 5 p.m. at Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St., in Baltimore. The awards will be presented at 6:30 p.m. followed by a dessert reception. The event hashtag is #TDRawards.
Winners will be profiled in a special magazine that will be inserted into the April 16 issue of The Daily Record and will be available online at www.TheDailyRecord.com.
