Hall of Fame award underlines long history of commitment to Maryland technology community

The Tech Council of Maryland honored Lockheed Martin with the 2013 Hall of Fame Award at its 25th annual Tech Awards Celebration, held at the Bethesda North Marriot Hotel and Conference Center in Bethesda, Md.

The Tech Awards Celebration is the mid-Atlantic region’s largest and most prestigious awards ceremony that recognizes leaders and innovators in the technology and life science communities from Maryland and the surrounding regions.

Information Systems & Global Solutions Executive Vice President Sondra L. Barbour accepted the Hall of Fame award on behalf of the Corporation.  “I’m honored to accept this Hall of Fame Award on behalf of Lockheed Martin, and am proud of our 25-year history with the Tech Council of Maryland,” she said in her remarks.  “With 100-years of innovation history and roots in Maryland dating back to 1929, our 7,500 employees in the state are committed to our communities and keeping Maryland at the forefront of technology and innovation.”

Hall of Fame recipients are recognized annually for being pillars in the Maryland community by giving back, getting involved and advancing the overall community climate for innovation. 

Lockheed Martin was honored for the active role the Corporation plays in helping to strengthen the quality of life in and around Maryland, supporting STEM programs, events and campaigns that focus on student achievement, teacher development, and gender and ethnic diversity. The Corporation was also recognized for the support it provides to service members with programs that improve their lives and the lives of their families, with enhanced educational and training opportunities.

Two Lockheed Martin executives were nominated as finalists for awards in other categories. James Collier, Vice President of Finance & Business Operations, IS&GS-National, was nominated for the Chief Financial Officer of the Year award.  Thomas Gordon, Vice President & Chief Technology Officer, IS&GS-National, was nominated for the Chief Information/Technology Officer of the Year award.
