19 Top Leaders of 2023: Our list of Valley leaders who are making a real difference!

by Mike Hunter

Each year, we select top leaders who have had great success over the preceding year. This year, we selected 19 leaders in varied established sectors within our business community. We asked hard-hitting questions of these leaders to get a sense of what they see for 2024. Each of them is truly entrenched in growing their companies and our economy, in developing policy, managing people and growing business through innovations that have a positive effect on our business community.

Each leader has been asked the same questions on the subjects of their effective management style, the impact of COVID-19 disruptions, what we can do to empower economic growth, and how their organization’s future will impact our economy.

Their answers are intriguing, thoughtful and certainly inspiring as we move into this new world of business in which we find ourselves.
