Nominations for the inaugural class of Arkansas Influencers of the Year have opened.
In 2020, Arkansas Money & Politics will honor 25 leaders from across the state for their business and civic accomplishments. The 25 individuals will be featured in the January 2020 print edition and honored at a event that will be announced at a later date.
According to AMP Publisher Heather Baker, the awards are a way to spotlight the tremendous achievements made each year by Arkansans that have a state, national and even global impact.
“Arkansas has so many inspiring leaders, and we want to recognize the individuals who are making our state a better place to live,” Baker says.
AMP Editor Mark Carter adds, “Arkansas is known for the can-do spirit of its business leaders. This includes not only the CEOs of our larger companies which compete on a global scale, but the small business owners and industry leaders who make Arkansas’ economic engine run. AMP‘s Influencer of the Year awards will recognize these drivers — many of whom aren’t household names — across the spectrum of Arkansas industry.”
