BOC President, CEO Recognized

Claudia Zacharias named as a 2016 SmartCEO Circle of Excellence Finalist

Local business publication Baltimore SmartCEO has named Board of Certification/Accreditation (BOC) president and CEO Claudia Zacharias, MBA, CAE, as a 2016 Circle of Excellence Award finalist.

SmartCEO’s Circle of Excellence program recognizes an area’s most-accomplished business leaders for their industry impact and market leadership. This makes the second recognition Zacharias has received this year; in August, The Daily Record named her one of Maryland’s 2016 Most Admired CEOs.

BOC has provided credentials demonstrating the competency and proficiency of Orthotics and Prosthetics (O&P) and Durable Medical Equipment (DME) professionals and suppliers for more than 30 years. In the seven years Zacharias has been with BOC, revenue has increased nearly 50 percent, due in part to the addition of two new credentialing programs, the Certified Durable Medical Equipment Specialist (CDME) and Pharmacy Accreditation, the company reported.

Recently, Zacharias spearheaded a revamped customer service for the longtime accreditation organization experience that in a four-year period garnered BOC five prestigious Stevie Awards for customer service and innovation. BOC has achieved net growth in the number of facilities accredited in recent years.

“I am honored to have been recognized as a finalist for this respected award,” says Zacharias. “It is the work ethic and dedication of BOC’s staff and Board of Directors that has allowed BOC to grow and I am fortunate to be surrounded by such a hardworking team.”
