October 12, 2021

SEVERN, MD, (October 12, 2021) – The Daily Record has named Jonathon Rondeau, President & CEO of The Arc Central Chesapeake Region (The Arc), one of Maryland’s 2021 Most Admired CEOs.

The Daily Record created the Most Admired CEOs awards program to recognize talented business CEOs and nonprofit executive directors throughout Maryland whose leadership and vision are admired by those around them. The winners were selected by an outside panel of judges based on professional accomplishments, community service and letters of reference submitted by co-workers, board members and community leaders showcasing the CEO’s leadership and vision.

Jonathon joined The Arc in 2017 and has overseen the expansion of its mission, creating greater access and opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities across Anne Arundel County and Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

“We are humbled and proud of Jonathon for receiving this award,” said Laura Austin, chair of the board of directors for The Arc. “His passion for creating a better, more inclusive community for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities is one of the many attributes that make him a fantastic leader.”

“This year’s Most Admired CEOs display leadership and vision that is admired by those around them. These individuals were selected for the honor for several reasons, including letters of reference from those with whom they work each day and from staff from nonprofits where they donate their time and talent,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, senior group publisher of The Daily Record. “They demonstrate innovation, a clarity of vision and a selfless approach to building teams, which makes them admired by many. We at The Daily Record congratulate them for their achievements.”

The winners will be honored on Tuesday, Nov. 2, at noon at an online celebration. Each of the honorees will be celebrated for their achievements through video storytelling. Guests will have the opportunity to participate in the program with their congratulations and cheers using social media platforms from their homes or offices.
