ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Governor Larry Hogan celebrated three Baltimore area companies that made the Fortune 500 list for the first time in over a decade.

Rowe Price, and McCormick over the past year,” said Governor Hogan. “The continued success of each of these three great companies is a testament to their leadership and their people, and it is also a shining example that Maryland is open for business and that our state is home to some of the best and most innovative companies in America.”
