Arts business entrepreneur Wendy Rosen has been recognized as one of Maryland’s Top 100 Women by The Daily Record, Maryland’s business and legal daily newspaper. Rosen is the founder and owner of The Rosen Group, a 24-year-old Baltimore-based arts marketing, publishing, and advocacy firm.

Her accomplishments include:

* Ten years of publishing AmericanStyle magazine, a nationally recognized arts and travel lifestyle bi-monthly.

* Transforming a vacant textile factory into the Mill Centre Artist Studio Complex, which offers affordable studio and office space to 90 tenants.

* Mentoring artists on how to take their careers to higher levels while helping to grow the community at large.

Rosen received her nomination for the list from Isabel Cumming, Assistant State’s Attorney for Baltimore City.

Produced by The Daily Record since 1996, this annual award program acknowledges one hundred of Maryland’s leading women who are making an impact in the state. Maryland’s Top 100 Women was created to recognize the outstanding achievements of professional women who reside or work in Maryland as well as provide the business community with a resource for selecting candidates to fill a management position or corporate board seat.

Women on this year’s list will be honored at the anniversary celebration to be held on May 18th from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore.

The Rosen Group also publishes NICHE magazine, www.nichemag.com, the exclusive trade publication for fine American craft retailers.
