Brian Gibbons Receives ‘Distinguished Citizen Award’ from Boy Scouts of America’s Baltimore Area Council

Owings Mills, Md. (May 8, 2013)  Brian Gibbons, chairman and CEO of Greenberg Gibbons, has been honored with the 2013 Henry A. Rosenberg, Sr., Distinguished Citizen Award by the Boy Scouts of America’s Baltimore Area Council.

Mr. Gibbons was recognized for his community leadership and outstanding contributions to improving the quality of life in the Baltimore area. As chairman and CEO of Greenberg Gibbons, he has spearheaded the development of projects valued in excess of $1 billion. These projects, which include Annapolis Towne Centre, Hunt Valley Towne Centre, Waugh Chapel Towne Centre, and the soon-to-be-developed Foundry Row, are vibrant assets that create new jobs, revenues and strong community gathering places.

“By maintaining extraordinary standards of personal integrity and character, Brian Gibbons exemplifies the values and traits found in the Scout Oath and Law,” said Henry A. Rosenberg Jr., vice president of the National Executive Board of the Boy Scouts of America. The award is named after Mr. Rosenberg’s father, the longtime president of Crown Petroleum, who was a leading advocate of scouting in the Baltimore area.

Mr. Gibbons received the award at a Boy Scouts of America event attended by more than 300 community leaders and scouting participants at Baltimore’s Renaissance Harborplace Hotel.

“I’m both honored and humbled to be recognized with this special award,” said Mr. Gibbons, himself a former scout. “I promise to do my best to live up to the great ideals and high standards it represents.”
