10 for the Next 10

Meet 10 rising leaders who are moving southwest Missouri into the next decade.

By Adrienne Donica | Art Direction by Alex Wolken

Jul 2018

Our second class of Southwest Missouri’s most promising emerging leaders doesn’t shy away from hard work. These big thinkers and creative problem-solvers aren’t seeking the limelight, though it has a way of finding them. They simply share a strong desire to do whatever they can to improve our community and won’t take no for an answer.

Methodology: Biz 417 selects honorees for our annual 10 for the Next 10 feature based on reader-, advisory board– and editor-submitted nominations. Nominees are evaluated on professional achievements, community impact and leadership qualities. There are no age or industry requirements. Nominations are accepted on a rolling basis with a formal nomination period each February. To learn more, visit biz417.com/nominate. These interviews have been edited and condensed for space.
