SmartCEO Names Jerry South CEO of the Year

Baltimore SmartCEO magazine has named Jerry South, CEO of the Annapolis-based Towne Park, as its 2010 CEO of the Year. Souths story of growing his business to become the worlds largest valet company was featured SmartCEOs October issue. SmartCEO also honored South at its CEO of the Year event on Oct. 6 at the Baltimore Museum of Industry. 
 In selecting its CEO of the Year, SmartCEO looks for CEOs who are true leaders among their peers. More than company revenues, profits and community popularity, SmartCEOs CEOs of the Year have proven track records of innovation and bringing value to the marketplace. They lead more than just companies; they lead industries in new directions.

Jerry South is highly deserving of this recognition, embodying all the characteristics we look for in our CEO of the Year, said Craig Burris, president, co-founder and publisher of Baltimore SmartCEO magazine. He leads by example and was not afraid to take calculated risks in the relentless pursuit of his vision, even when the odds were against him. Jerry South is an example to his fellow CEOs.

South joins a distinguished list of past CEO of the Year honorees, including Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank, former Ravens CEO Art Modell, DLA Piper CEO Frank Burch, Boordy Vineyard CEO Rob Deford and Merkle CEO David Williams.

Jerry is truly deserving of this award, shared Dave Nichols, COO of Towne Park. His passion for the people of Towne Park and his innovative entrepreneurial drive to grow has truly shaped the company. His vision for what can be and his ongoing challenge to excel in all that we do has provided the leadership that has made Towne Park the great company that it is today. All of us at Towne Park are proud to be a part of Jerrys vision and success.
