In a statement released Feburary 4, 2020, The Daily Record announced that it had selected Preservation Maryland Executive Director Nicholas Redding to receive the 2020 Influential Marylander award.

Fifty-two Influential Marylanders were selected by the editors of The Daily Record for their significant contributions to their respective fields and for their leadership in Maryland in the following areas: civic leadership, communications, education, finance, freestyle, general business, health care, law, philanthropy, real estate and technology.  Elected officials are not eligible for this award because they are by nature influential.

The Daily Record launched Influential Marylanders in 2007 to recognize those who have made significant impacts in their field and continue to be leaders in Maryland.

“Influential Marylanders are visionary, respected and admired for the work they do to improve the lives of Marylanders,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “They are leaders in their respective fields and bring promise to those who benefit from their hard work. We at The Daily Record are proud to recognize them.”
