March 08, 1996

Three chief executives of Maryland companies won Silver CEO awards for outstanding performance in their industries, awarded after polling of 3,500 chief executives by Financial World magazine.

Alvin B. Krongard of Alex. Brown Inc., the Baltimore securities firm, joined Terence C. Golden of Host Marriott Corp. and J. Willard Marriott Jr. of Marriott International Inc. among the 71 winners in separate industry groups. "To get to that point, your peers in the industry had to vote you the best," magazine spokesman Tom Gibson said. "It's sort of like the Grammys."

Mr. Krongard prevailed in the finance company sector; the runners-up were the heads of Morgan Stanley Group Inc. and Charles Schwab Corp. Mr. Golden won among finance/real estate companies, and Mr. Marriott won in the service company category.

Arthur C. Martinez of Sears, Roebuck and Co. won the CEO of the Year Award in a contest among the 71 category winners.

California and Illinois topped the rankings with eight winners each. The District of Columbia, Delaware and Virginia each had one.
