CEO Comments

“Love Maryland for quality of life and nearness to New York City, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. We have a great airport – not too big and not too small. Can drive to a large client base.”

“Maryland is looking to pass a new sick leave law which mandates that employers over 15 employees must accrue up to 56 hours to be used without restriction.”
