The head of Baltimore's most prominent business leadership and lobbying group was honored last night by Loyola College's Sellinger School of Business and Management. Frank P. Bramble, chairman of the Greater Baltimore Committee, was named Business Leader of the Year before more than 800 people at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel.

Bramble, president and chief executive of First Maryland Bancorp, is chairman of the Baltimore Center for the Performing Arts, vice chairman of the University of Maryland Medical Systems and a member of the mayor's Business Advisory Council.

"Mr. Bramble has evinced vision and steadiness of purpose, bringing new perspectives to the [financial services] industry by renewing and building successful banking companies," said the Rev. Harold Ridley Jr., president of the college. "In addition, his commitment to strengthening the region's economic climate makes him a particularly worthy honoree this year."

Past recipients include Charles M. Cawley, chairman and chief executive of MBNA Corp. and George J. Collins, retired president and chief executive of T. Rowe Price Associates Inc.
