PBN subscribers have no doubt seen the 2014 version of our Book of Lists, which was included as part of this week’s edition. We spend our entire fourth quarter working on it, but its contents are a true measure of the entire year.
The backbone of the BOL is the collection of lists, more than 80 every year, all updated for publication. But one of the most important pieces of the book is not data driven so much as it is driven by the quality of the business community.
The first section of the BOL includes our list of the 10 Most Influential People affecting the business community in the previous year. It is a collection of achievers and influencers, and it should be your first step into the 192-page publication.
But that first section of the book also includes lists of all the winners of PBN’s recognition programs throughout the year, from 40 Under Forty to Business Women and beyond. It is a collection that represents the vibrancy and talent of the region, past, present and future. If you want to know who is doing great things today and will be tomorrow, peruse the list. It’s worth the time. •
