BALTIMORE, Md., July 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Daily Record has named John Scott, Jr., President & CEO of Westminster American Insurance Company as one of Maryland's 2015 Most Admired CEOs.

"It is a tremendously challenging job, and we at The Daily Record are pleased to honor this year's Most Admired CEOs."
