Three Johns Hopkins Carey Business School MBA graduates have been recognized by the Baltimore Business Journal for their leadership in the local business community. Olga Maltseva Brillman (MBA, ’12), Kwame Kuadey (MBA, ’08), and Alex Kopicki (MSRE, ’11) are among the BBJ’s “40 Under 40” honorees for 2014.
Brillman is director of philanthropy at Camden Partners, a diversified investment management company based in Baltimore, and is also the founding executive director of the Warnock Foundation, which supports local social innovators who work to address a range of issues related to equity and engagement in the city.
Kuadey, who is also a 2014 winner of the Maryland EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award, is the chief executive officer and founder of Giftcardrescue.com, an online marketplace where users can buy and sell unused gift cards.
Alex Kopicki is a co-founder of real estate company Solstice Partners and the real estate website Kinglet. He earned his graduate degree in real estate from the Carey Business School and develops properties in Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
A reception honoring the 40 Under 40 honorees was scheduled for December 4 at the Hard Rock Café in Baltimore, and the BBJ planned to publish a special print publication about them December 5.
