Twenty-eight Midlands-area business leaders — 14 established community stalwarts and 14 hard-charging game-changers — have been selected as members of the Columbia Regional Business Report’s second class of Icons and Phenoms.
The Business Report is honoring a pair of groups making an impact on the area business scene: Icons, the respected pillars who have established standards of business and civic excellence; and Phenoms, the motivated go-getters who are getting things done in new and exciting ways.
This year’s honorees span a wide range of industry, from construction pioneers to city leaders to nonprofit champions.
Award recipients, nominated by Business Report readers and selected by a panel of judges, will be recognized at an online event Aug. 5. A profile of each honoree will be published in the July 20 print edition of the Business Report.
