Baltimore-based Fallston Group, a global reputation agency, is pleased to announce that Rob Weinhold, the firm’s chief executive, has been named one of Maryland’s 2017 Most Admired CEOs by The Daily Record.
The Daily Record created the Most Admired CEOs awards program to recognize talented business CEOs and nonprofit executive directors throughout Maryland for their leadership and professionalism. The winners were selected based on professional accomplishments, community service and letters of reference submitted by co-workers, board members and community leaders showing the CEO’s leadership and vision.
“To be a Most Admired CEO means that you have gained the respect and admiration of those around you. It means you are making a positive impact on the lives of others,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “Our honorees this year were nominated by co-workers, community organizations and other leaders not just for their professional achievements but because they are truly admired by their peers and employees. The Daily Record is pleased to recognize their leadership in our state and beyond.”
After several decades of private and public sector leadership service, Weinhold launched Fallston Group in 2009 to continue his career mission of helping organizations during life’s most critical times. Throughout his career, Weinhold has been recognized for his unique ability to lead by creating vision and building consensus across diverse stakeholder bases, even during the most sensitive of times. He is routinely called upon by members of the national and local news media to provide perspective on crisis leadership, public safety and communications.
Weinhold holds a graduate degree (MSM) from The Johns Hopkins University Carey School of Business and undergraduate degree from the University of Baltimore. He is nationally published (The Art of Crisis Leadership) and has trained and lectured in a variety of professional and academic settings on the topics of crisis leadership, communications, media relations, and public safety and security.
“Receiving recognition as one of Maryland’s most admired CEOs is an unexpected honor and privilege. I was incredibly humbled to learn of the nomination and even more grateful to fully understand the true positive impact we have on our clients, partners and one another, each and every day,” said Weinhold. He adds, “Our team’s foundational mission is to help people during life’s most critical times. This prestigious award, and its supportive submissions, serve as career validation. I am grateful to have been honored among so many innovative, purposeful leaders.”
Weinhold was honored in the category of Private Company with 50 or Fewer Employees at the annual Most Admired CEOs award dinner organized by The Daily Record on Thursday, November 9. Additional winners were chosen in the categories of Circle of Leadership, Nonprofit Less Than $10M in Annual Revenue, Nonprofit More Than $10M in Annual Revenue, Private Company with 50 or Fewer Employees, Private Company with 51-149 Employees, Private Company with 150-499 Employees and Private Company with More Than 500 Employees.
