According to Baltimore SmartCEO, the “Circle of Excellence” recognizes ” the paragons of the Greater Baltimore business community,” with the hope that their “stories inspire you and your company to greater success.” The awards honored each CEO for a particular kind of excellence that is embodied in their work. Why were they selected? Introducing this year’s honorees, Baltimore SmartCEO explained, “[w]hat these companies have in common is that their leaders, through their business acumen and character, are excelling where others are falling short. They’ve succeeded in taking an aspect of their business to a level that most companies rarely achieve.”

In her profile, Murthy challenges her readers to ask themselves, “What more can we do in terms of our time, our money, to make the world a better place? Life is a spiritual journey, so all of this giving and sharing is so integral and vital to our own good health and happiness.” We agree, and are proud to share in Sheela’s accomplishments!
