Maryland Tech Council’s Marty Rosendale Named Most Admired CEO by The Daily Record

Frederick, Maryland (September 20, 2022) – Marty Rosendale, CEO of the Maryland Tech Council, has been named a 2022 “Most Admired CEO” by The Daily Record in its Nonprofit Less Than $10 Million in Annual Revenue category. 


“Since the day he became CEO, Marty has led with selflessness, patience, empathy for staff and our member organizations,” said Michelle Ferrone, Chief Operating Officer of the Maryland Tech Council. “From the launch of our BioHub Maryland workforce development initiative to the creation of three regional chapters across Maryland, Marty has been the driving force for our organization’s transformational successes over the past year.” 


Under Marty’s leadership, the Maryland Tech Council this year secured nearly $5 million in federal and state funding to launch BioHub Maryland. BioHub Maryland is the state’s first life science workforce development initiative designed to create the robust talent pipeline our biotech industry depends on to innovate life-saving treatments and cures. This initiative secured bipartisan support from Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, the Maryland General Assembly, and U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen.


Additionally, Marty spearheaded MTC’s launch of three regional chapters in Prince George’s County, the Baltimore region, and the Chesapeake region. As a result of Marty’s work launching these chapters, more tech and life science organizations have a voice and an advocate in their community. 


“The 2022 Most Admired CEOs demonstrate clarity of vision, a selfless approach to building teams and a sense of calling to a higher purpose. They are at the top of their professional careers, mentor the next generation and make a positive impact on their communities,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, senior group publisher of The Daily Record. “They inspire and motivate others to achieve their goals. The Daily Record is pleased to honor them for their incredible achievements.”


“I thank The Daily Record for this wonderful distinction,” said Marty Rosendale, CEO of the Maryland Tech Council. “This honor is the direct result of the incredible work of our staff and board, and the relentlessly innovative spirit of our tech and life sciences member organizations. It is my privilege to represent them as we seek to make Maryland the foremost innovation economy in the nation.”
