Dottie Li Named Maryland’s Top 100 Women for a Second Time

(Baltimore, MD) Dottie Li, Founder and CEO of TransPacific Communications, has been recognized as one of Maryland’s Top 100 Women by the Daily Record. This is Dottie’s second time receiving this honor, becoming the first Chinese American woman to be so acknowledged in 2015.

“It is a tremendous honor to be among so many accomplished women again, Maryland’s Top 100 Women, especially on this milestone 25th anniversary of the awards program,” Dottie Li said.  “And I’m really pleased to see other Asian American women have received this award since 2015. It’s gratifying to know we’re making a difference in our communities.”

Dottie was commended for her professional achievement, community leadership and mentoring.  This year’s nominations went through two rounds of judging. A panel of business professionals and previous Maryland’s Top 100 Women honorees from across the state reviewed the final applications and selected this year’s honorees.

“This year’s Maryland’s Top 100 Women honorees join more than 1,500 of their peers in receiving this distinct honor. These women lead companies, create change, break barriers, chart new territory and make a difference at home, at work and in their communities,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of The Daily Record. “Additionally, Maryland’s Top 100 Women mentor others and inspire future generations. Top 100 Women help others see something special in themselves, something they might not have known was there. We at The Daily Record are honored to recognize these leaders in our community and beyond.” 

“There are few individuals who can ably rise to the challenge in nearly all environments—public, professional, community, federal agencies, and the private sector—to not only lead with a steady hand, but also to advance strides in its mission, values, and workforce—and that is Dottie Li,” said Maryland State Senator Clarence Lam, MD, who endorsed Dottie for this award.

The names of the Top 100 Women were announced in The Daily Record, online at and through an email blast to its subscribers. The traditional evening gala of celebration and awards ceremony is being transformed this year into a virtual event.  Information and participation can be found at
