Joan Plisko Among Maryland’s Top 100 for 2016

Baltimore, Md. The Daily Record named Joan Plisko, president and founder of Plisko Sustainable Solutions, to its 2016 listing of Maryland’s Top 100 Women. The Daily Record began Maryland’s Top 100 Women in 1996 to recognize outstanding achievements by women demonstrated through professional accomplishments, community leadership and mentoring. A panel of business leaders and past winners selected the awardees, with Plisko’s achievements earning her a place among the esteemed honorees.

“Joan has shown exceptional leadership, vision, inspiration and perseverance in the field of environmental health and sustainability. She is an educator and role model,” said Carmela Coyle, president and CEO of the Maryland Hospital Association.

Other colleagues from throughout Plisko’s career agree: “Joan continually demonstrates her technical and organizational savvy and brings results to the table,” said Karen Kreisberg, executive director of The Zanvyl and Isabelle Krieger Fund. “She is insightful and innovative.”

“Organized, detailed and responsive, Joan is adept at facilitating a project from beginning to end,” said Shari Solomon, President of CleanHealth Environmental. It is these qualities, along with her vast experience in environmental systems engineering, that earned Plisko her spot as a 2016 awardee.

“Maryland’s Top Women honorees are exemplary citizens, committed to their communities, to creating change and to growing the next generation of leaders through mentoring,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “This year’s honorees share a talent for balancing the many facets of their lives while serving as outstanding leaders. The Daily Record is pleased to honor them.”
