The contrast of the fortunes of urban economies to those of the suburbs can be seen in the rise and fall of SmartCEO and its founder, former suburban Bel Air, Maryland resident Craig Burris. In less than a year, the 50-plus year-old Burris saw his fortunes rise to circa USD 40m before crashing down to personal and corporate bankruptcy and facing the real risk of imprisonment for fraud, embezzlement and larceny.
On January 11, 2018, Craig Burris filed Chapter 7 personal bankruptcy at the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District Maryland in Baltimore claiming to owe between USD 500,000 to USD 1m in debts, of which most incurred by EMI Media Inc, d/b/a SmartCEO.
