January 17, 2014

Hunt Valley, MD (Jan. 16, 2014) — Baltimore SmartCEO announced that Jim Kehres is the winner of their 2014 Executive Management Awards. Jim was recognized for his role as Chief Technology Officer for Integris. Integris is a leading IT company in Baltimore.

SmartCEO’s Executive Management Awards Program (EMA) recognizes the leadership and accomplishments of Baltimore’s management all-stars. The 2014 EMA winners collectively generate nearly $4.5 billion in annual revenue and employ over 15,000 individuals in Greater Baltimore.

All too often, senior leaders in an organization become unsung heroes. This is why SmartCEO designed the Executive Management Awards. Winners are recognized for their creative management vision, leadership philosophy, innovative strategy and undeniable work ethic.

Jim and other SmartCEO winners will be recognized in the March/April issue of SmartCEO magazine and celebrated at an awards ceremony on March 18, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore.

“The 2014 Executive Management Award winners are not only leading their companies and co-workers to achieve great things but they are also making huge contributions to their communities,” says Jaime Nespor, regional president of SmartCEO media. “We are honored to recognize each of these individuals and celebrate their accomplishments.”

Jim responded to his award by saying:

“I’m honored to have received The SmartCEO Award for myself and for Integris Technologies. I accept it on behalf of all my teammates at Integris. Without the backing of our qualified professionals, I wouldn’t be receiving this award today. “
