An Entrepreneurial Success Story
Palisades President & CEO Michael Horn to receive SBA’s “2004 Maryland Entrepreneurial Success of the Year” Award
Elkridge, MD (March 23, 2004) – Palisades has just received notification that President & CEO Michael Horn has been selected as the recipient of the U.S. Small Business Association’s 2004 Maryland Entrepreneurial Success of the Year award. Horn was nominated for the award last November by the Howard County Chamber of Commerce.
Horn commented, “I would like to thank my entire team at Palisades for all of their hard work and dedication; without them, this award would belong to some other company’s CEO. I’d also like to thank the Howard County Chamber of Commerce, who nominated me for this prestigious award. And, finally, thanks to the SBA and the judges for choosing to acknowledge all of the hard work that has gone into Palisades over the past ten years.”
