21 Top Leaders Who Are Making a Real Difference!

by Mike Hunter

Each year, we interview some of the Valley’s top leaders to give our readership some insight into what they see in the coming year for business. This year, we asked some hard-hitting questions of 21 top leaders who are truly entrenched in building our economy, developing policy, managing people and growing business through innovations that have demonstrated a real positive effect on our business community.

Each was asked the same questions on the subjects of their effective management style, the impact of COVID-19 disruption, 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 we find ourselves in.
