“Honoring visionaries who are driving innovation" was the theme of Maryland Tech Council's Industry Awards Celebration held on June 1st at the Bethesda Marriott. For the 29th year, the Council recognized individuals and companies who are leading the way in advancing the life sciences, technology, and healthcare industries in Maryland. Winners were to be announced at the celebration.
At a sold out event with ~900 industry professionals in attendance, Bob Kramer and other Emergent executives showed their support for Dan Abdun-Nabi, who was a finalist for CEO of the Year, but unable to attend the ceremony. The CEO of the Year Award is given to a CEO who is an outstanding leader and communicator, an integral part of the firm's growth and profitability, skilled at taking risks that lead to success, and a leader in the biotechnology community. Dan bested five other CEO finalists in the category each with a distinguished background leading organizations that provided services ranging from government contracting, information management supporting intelligence, cyber and counterterrorism communities, national security software solutions, and cloud computing.
Bob graciously accepted the award on Dan's behalf stating that "this award represents the passion and dedication of employees across our company" and thanking all of them for their many meaningful contributions to Emergent's success. Congratulations Dan!
