Three Baltimore-area CEOs selected for national list of leading businesswomen
Three Baltimore-area CEOs have been named to the inaugural Bizwomen 100, the first national listing of women who are making an impact in their local business communities.
This group of executives and entrepreneurs represents companies from Boston to Honolulu, from Seattle to South Florida. The group includes women who’ve launched their own companies and who’ve become Fortune 500, C-suite leaders. They’re advocates for their communities; they’re disrupting their industries.
In Greater Baltimore, those women include Marsha Carter-Hall, CEO of Quench Infusions and Wellness, MaryAnne Gilmartin, CEO of MAG Partners (based in New York City) and Elizabeth Wise, CEO of University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health.
Learn more about the women featured in Bizwomen 100 in our gallery. And connect with them with our national website, Bizwomen.com, which features a daily newsletter on the latest news, trends and profiles of women throughout the country.
Those in Baltimore’s real estate and development industries are likely already familiar with Gilmartin. Her firm is leading the development of the emerging Baltimore Peninsula community.
The $5.5 billion project, which takes place on a 235-acre site in Port Covington, will be anchored by Under Armour’s new global headquarters as well as new residential, office and retail buildings.
Gilmartin and MAG Partners took over the project from Weller Development last year. Construction on the site is well underway, with the first two apartment buildings now leasing to tenants.
Carter-Hall is the CEO of Quench, a medical spa in Reisterstown, as well as the owner of a consulting business Cashflow CEO Collective, where she mentors other nurses about how to transfer their skills into the world of entrepreneurship.
She was named Mentor of the Year in February by the Baltimore Business Journal for her work supporting women in her community.
Wise is now in her second year overseeing the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health, which includes keeping tabs on $250 million worth of construction projects. The system employs more than 3,600 staff and nearly 500 physicians.
Wise said she was drawn to the new position, and Harford County itself, because of its strong sense of community. The BBJ named her a 2023 “Face to Watch” in January.
