The panel of independent judges was comprised of prominent leaders and entrepreneurs from the local community, as well as the business and finance industries. In choosing their nominees, the judges highlighted those who are inspirations to others in their leadership, achievement, and vision. The award seeks to recognize the potential of those nominees as they lead and build businesses that are both dynamic and thriving.
