The Washington Business Journal recently released its annual Power 100 list, highlighting area leaders who have made significant strides in strengthening their communities. Included in this year’s list is Rosslyn Business Improvement District (BID) President Mary-Claire Burick, who for nearly a decade has led efforts that helped evolve Rosslyn from a successful commercial district into a vibrant community. Rosslyn has become a key economic hub in Northern Virginia, and is a gateway to the best of the Washington, D.C. region.
Honorees are chosen not for the size or revenue of their organization, but rather for the way they are able to leverage their network to have real impact on the communities and people they serve.
“It is a privilege to be recognized in this year’s Power 100. This list includes incredible changemakers who are shaping our nation’s capital, and I’m honored to be included alongside them,” said Burick. “I am proud to lead a team that’s making a measurable difference. I believe that strong cities start with strong BIDs, and I look forward to continuing to foster Rosslyn’s growth as one of the best places for people to live, work and invest.”
Burick is a well-known leader in the D.C. area who has been recognized at both the local and national level for her creativity and innovation in place management. Last month, she was also named a Board member of the International Downtown Association, demonstrating her impact in the local area and beyond.
Under Burick’s leadership, the Rosslyn BID convenes key stakeholders – including local business leaders and property owners, as well as partnering with Arlington County – to create a place where prominent companies, like Nestlé, Microsoft, Deloitte, and Accenture’s cyber fusion center, want to be. The BID continues to bolster amenities like food halls, fitness studios, farmer’s markets, and green spaces to support the 30,000 employees and 15,000 residents who call Rosslyn home.
