BALTIMORE, MD – On Thursday, May 18th the Honorable Francis X. Kelly, Jr., Chairman and Co-Founder of Kelly & Associates Insurance Group and Frank Kelly III, CEO of Kelly & Associates Insurance Group and KELLY Payroll attended the first Maryland Governor’s Business Summit as a Business Champion in the Secretary’s Circle through the Maryland Marketing Partnership.
The Maryland Marketing Partnership per the Department of Commerce was created to develop a branding strategy for the state, market the state’s assets, encourage growth of existing businesses and attract new businesses to the state. This partnership engages leading-edge businesses as private sector partners to help supplement the State’s investment and provide top-level insights to economic expansion.
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan led the charge in the first ever Business Summit, where he connected with a wide array of Maryland’s business leaders by exploring topics on human capital, global trends and business strategy.
The Business Summit worked to portray the momentum that is happening in Maryland, “Our economic climate has gone from 49th in the nation to number 11 – the largest jump among states. Our companies are adding thousands of new jobs to our communities, more than 73,000 since January 2015. We are making meaningful progress for business,” Hogan said.
Over the next three years, KELLY’s partnership as a Business Champion in the Secretary’s Circle will help continue this momentum by increasing outreach and responsiveness to boost Maryland’s profile in the marketplace. In doing so, Maryland will be seen as the pro-business and asset-rich state it has become.
KELLY is excited to join other Business Champions in order to launch this new era of growth and stunning success in Maryland.
