The Eleventh annual Montgomery County Business Hall of Fame (MCBHOF) will be held on Tuesday, October 24, 2023 at The Universities of Shady Grove (USG). This prestigious event, co-founded by Grossberg Company LLP, CPAs and Sandy Spring Bank is a celebration of people who have made a positive impact on the Montgomery County business community.

Since its inception, MCBHOF has raised over $1.46 million for the USG scholarship fund through donations and through the induction event. This year, the scholarship funding is more important than ever. Please help keep the Hall of Fame’s mission of educational opportunity and consider making a tax deductible donation to the Montgomery County Business Hall of Fame Scholarship Fund. All net proceeds from the MCBHOF benefit the scholarship programs at The Universities at Shady Grove, the University System of Maryland’s regional educational center which brings nine Maryland public universities and more than 80 academic degree programs directly to Montgomery County. The same type of vision that led to the creation of USG – to do something truly unique and extraordinary – is the type of vision our honorees all share.

The four inductees for the 2023 MCBHOF are: Jillian Copeland, Founder, Main Street Connect, Joseph Craig English, Artist & Printmaker, David Trone, Co-Founder, Total Wine and More, S. Tien Wong, Chairman & CEO, Opus8, Inc.
