World Economic Forum Names Brown Advisory's Dune Thorne As A 2013 Young Global Leader

BALTIMORE, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Brown Advisory, an independent investment management and strategic advisory firm with approximately $35 billion in client assets, is pleased to announce that the World Economic Forum has selected Dune Thorne, Partner in the firm's Boston office, as a 2013 Young Global Leader.

The Forum of Young Global Leaders is a unique, not-for-profit foundation that works closely with the World Economic Forum on research and initiatives to make a positive impact on the world. Coming from diverse backgrounds, Young Global Leaders work in close cooperation with the stakeholders of the World Economic Forum to shape industry, regional and global change.

Each year, drawing from a pool of thousands of nominees, the World Economic Forum's selection committee recognizes 199 individuals under the age of 40 as Young Global Leaders. Candidates are chosen based on their proven track record of professional accomplishments, breadth of their expertise, commitment to society and their ability to overcome adversity, among other criteria.

"We are extremely proud of Dune for her recognition by the World Economic Forum," said Michael D. Hankin, President and CEO of Brown Advisory.  "She will contribute her considerable talents to the organization and gain valuable insight and experience that she can share with her colleagues and clients."

Dune will become part of the broader Forum of Young Global Leaders community that currently numbers more than 700 outstanding individuals. The Leaders convene at an annual summit, which will be held this year in Yangon, Myanmar.

"It is an honor and privilege to be recognized as part of this year's distinguished class of Young Global Leaders," said Dune Thorne. "I am humbled to join an organization that is focused on addressing some of the largest, most complex issues facing the world."
