Ellin & Tucker, the Baltimore-based public accounting and business consulting firm, announced today that Kim Fusco, a principal in the firm’s audit and accounting department, is a recipient of The Daily Record’s 2017 Leading Women awards. Fusco was recognized due to her professional accomplishments, her commitment to mentoring young female accountants and her contributions to the Maryland community. The award ceremony will be held on December 4, 2017 at The Westin Annapolis.
“It is an honor to be recognized amongst such a strong group of female leaders,” said Fusco. “Maryland is better off because of their hard work and commitment to philanthropy, and I am inspired when I look around and see what women in leadership are doing for our community.”
The Leading Women awards honor women who are 40 years old or younger for the accomplishments they have made so far in their careers. The applicants were judged on professional experience, community involvement and their commitment to inspiring change. A panel of business and legal professionals and a representative of The Daily Record selected the winners.

She is also the founder of the firm’s Giving Back Committee, a group dedicated to raising money for, donating items to and volunteering in Greater Baltimore.
