McGladrey was one of twelve Baltimore area companies recognized by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake as winners of the 2012 Mayor’s Business Recognition Award.

The award acknowledges area businesses who exhibit corporate leadership, commitment to community, and dedication to volunteering their time and resources to enhance Baltimore neighborhoods. During the annual luncheon event, which was held at the Hyatt Regency, Mayor Rawlings-Blake joined the Baltimore Development Corporation and the Greater Baltimore Committee in presenting the award.

All McGladrey employees are provided with numerous opportunities each year to volunteer their time to firm sponsored community service events. In the Baltimore office, The Baltimore Culture Club Outreach Committee organizes and launches multiple initiatives each year which benefit multiple charities and foundations. Events are held both in and out of the office, encouraging employee engagement and team building while out in the community. Fundraising events benefit charities like Ronald McDonald House, The Good Shepherd Center, the Abilities Network, and Movember and Sons.
