ANNAPOLIS, MD, November 20, 2015 – The Baltimore SmartCEO announced Nancy Squires, Founder and CEO of The Squires Group, Inc. (TSGi), as the winner of the SmartCEO’s Circle of Excellence award in the Professional Services category for medium sized businesses. This year’s Circle of Excellence Award ceremony took place on November 17, 2015 at the Baltimore Harbor Hotel and recognized the area’s most accomplished business leaders for their industry impact and market leadership. The 2015 Circle of Excellence finalists collectively generate more than $837 million in revenue and employ 3,415 people in the Greater Baltimore Area.
“The Circle of Excellence finalists are shaping the future of Baltimore’s business community and ensuring the sustainability, safety and efficiency of our community for years to come,” says Jaime Nespor-Zawmon, President of SmartCEO Events. “We proudly recognize their successes and contributions, and we believe that their impact will make a difference for customers and clients across the nation.”
“Winning this award this year is very special to me as we celebrate our 20th Anniversary. When I reflect back on my decision to start The Squires Group 20 years ago, I had the vision of being the region’s most trusted talent solutions partner. This vision shaped many key decisions–like who to hire, what specialty areas to focus on, and which companies to partner with,” says Nancy Squires. “Being in the people business, the one thing that I learned early on was to surround myself with really smart people that complement my skills. In 2003, I made one of my best decisions, which was to bring on my business partner, Eric Galasso, President of TSGi, to build upon the foundation of our business. Over the next few years, he assembled a great team that is dedicated to delivering world class service to our clients and consultants. I would also like to extend my gratitude to all of our consultants who continuously strive to deliver on our client’s goals and mission. This award would not have been possible without my business partner, my fabulous operations team and all of our field consultants who contribute to our clients’ success.”
