Barnett on Maryland's
The Maryland Daily Record has named Walnut Ridge native Angie Barnett to its 2017 listing of Maryland's Top 100 Women.
Barnett is president and CEO of the Better Business Bureau, serving Greater Maryland. A graduate of Walnut Ridge High School, she is the daughter of Norma Taylor of Walnut Ridge and the late James Taylor.
The Daily Record began Maryland's Top 100 Women in 1996 to recognize outstanding achievements by women demonstrated through professional accomplishments, community leadership and mentoring. A record number of 435 women were nominated this year for the statewide honor.
Angie's background includes extensive experience serving in executive roles for non-profit organizations. She assumed the leadership position with the Better Business Bureau in March 2006.
She previously held elected positions within the BBB system including the Brand Operating Committee and Budget and Finance Committee. She previously chaired BBB's international Brand Work Group and served on the board of directors for Atlantic Financial Federal Credit Union.
In addition to her leadership role with BBB, Barnett serves on the advisory board of Towson University's College of Business and Economics. Four years ago, that capacity led Barnett to begin mentoring students in their senior year. She continues her commitment to their success by providing guidance to mentees as they progress in their careers.
After graduating with advanced degrees in sociology, Barnett focused her energies to serve communities at greatest risk and in greatest need through innovative programs and services. She served as the founding director of a community-based program bringing education and work-place skills to young parents and has assisted the Cecil County Commissioners in implementing a HotSpot program to reduce crime.
She has also served as vice president of membership at the Maryland Chamber of Commerce.
Barnett made Maryland home after moving from her birth state of Arkansas. She now lives in the historic Federal Hill area of Baltimore.
She is a 2000 graduate of Leadership Maryland and continues to serve on boards of community-based programs. She has one daughter, Stephanie, who lives in Dallas.
"This year's Maryland's Top 100 Women honorees lead companies, create change, break barriers, chart new territory and inspire future generations," said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. "These women make a difference at home, at work and in their communities. The Daily Record is proud to honor them."
The awards event will be held Monday, April 24, starting at 5 p.m. at Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore. The awards will be presented at 6:30 p.m. followed by a dessert reception.
Winners will be profiled in a special magazine that will be inserted into the Tuesday, April 25, issue of The Daily Record and available online at TheDailyRecord.com.
