Leadership Maryland announced that Roy McGrath, Director and CEO of Maryland Environmental Service, has completed the professional development program dedicated to building a better Maryland through harnessing the strength of its local business and community leaders. Leadership Maryland honored McGrath, a resident of Charles County, and the entire Class of 2017, at its 25th annual graduation ceremony held December 5 at the Lord Baltimore Hotel.
McGrath was one of 52 applicants chosen by committee to complete Leadership Maryland’s eight-month, hands-on learning program focused on the state’s most vital social, economic and environmental issues. Leadership Maryland is a program for senior-level executives with significant achievements in either their careers and/or their communities.
“It was a genuine privilege to have participated in such an enriching experience with both public and private sector leaders across the State,” said McGrath. “This opportunity has created invaluable relationships. It’s been a win-win both professionally and personally.”
Leadership Maryland Board Chairman Eric Brotman, ‘09 president and managing principal, Brotman Financial Group added: “On behalf of the Board of Directors, I feel especially honored to congratulate Leadership Maryland’s silver anniversary graduating class on beginning their lifelong inclusion in a very special club.”
McGrath was also recently selected to serve as a member of the Board of Visitors at the University of Maryland, College Park College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSOS). Meeting three times a year, the Board of Visitors at BSOS provides a source of valuable support and guidance from experienced professionals and industry leaders. Working closely with the college's administration, faculty, students, and Dean, the Board of Visitors focuses on a number of initiatives and projects to further the college's pursuits.---
