About the SmartCEO Circle
The Baltimore SmartCEO 2013 Circle of Excellence Awards is an annual award ceremony that recognizes business leaders in Baltimore for their industry excellence/ business achievements.
Winners of the SMartCEO Circle of Excellence award are CEOs that successfully took some aspect of their business to the next level in a way that’s rarely achieved by companies within their industries.
29 finalists were chosen for the SmartCEO 2013 Circle of Excellence Award, only 10 winners were chosen from the following industry categories:
These top CEOs help employ over 3,000 workers in the Greater Baltimore area; 2013 is the 5th year of the Circle of Excellence program.
Tony was chosen as the winner of the Minority Owned Business category because he has led the commercial furniture company ahead of its 3 year business plan of growth, while increasing the business revenues by 98 percent.
Over the past 15 years Edwards & Hill Office Furniture has reinvented itself from a Communications marketing/event company to a commercial furniture business that sells and installs furniture for schools, laboratories, healthcare facilities, the hospitality industry and commercial offices.

During this hospitality project, Tony and Hans team installed a total of 2,000 guests rooms, 74 guest rooms every 24 hours, during 36-hour shifts to complete the project on time.
But that’s not the only reason Tony is a business leader of excellence; he is also an outstanding community leader.
