Thomas S. Bozzuto, chairman and co-founder of The Bozzuto Group, was named Business Leader of the Year for 2018 by Loyola University’s Sellinger School of Business and Management.
The award, to be given at a dinner Nov. 13, honors business executives who embody Loyola’s Jesuit commitment to community and service in the leadership of their organization.
“When we select the Business Leader of the Year, we intentionally honor a leader and an organization that have a deep commitment to Baltimore and to Maryland,” said Kathleen A. Getz, dean of the Sellinger School, in a statement. “Through his vision and guidance of The Bozzuto Group, Tom Bozzuto is an outstanding example of a business leader who recognizes the role a company can play in strengthening communities, partnering with nonprofits, providing exceptional service to its customers, and ensuring that the environment is valued and preserved.”
The Bozzuto Group, headquartered in Greenbelt, has done extensive residential development throughout the Baltimore region, including the luxury apartment project The Anthem House in Locust Point that opened last year.
Bozzuto is also a philanthropist and active in national housing policy. He serves as a member of the advisory board of the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies, a board member of Greater Baltimore Committee, and a member of the board and the executive committee at the Baltimore Community Foundation.
Last year, Loyola’s Sellinger school honored Michael D. Hankin, president and CEO of Brown Advisory.
