Biz 417’s 2021 Biz 100
Meet the 2021 Biz 100. You already know these names. They’re the people shaping southwest Missouri’s future. This list gets to the heart of why they’re essential to our economy and culture.
How it works
Since 2016, we have recognized the most powerful and influential business leaders in 417-land in our annual Biz 100 list. Each year, we evaluate current and prospective honorees based on their individual business success, their impact on the local business community and their community involvement. Current honorees are eligible to appear again, but as people retire, leave the area or otherwise take a step back, they can be taken off the list. Leaders can come from any industry and hold any title; however, we are looking for people who truly have the ability to move the needle in one or more of the areas listed above.
We accept nominations for Biz 100 on a rolling basis and decide on the current year’s group of honorees each May. The feature appears in each November/December issue.
