They lead the way in innovation, job creation and economic revitalization, and it’s an honor to shine the spotlight on their leadership and accomplishments,” said ICIC CEO Steve Grossman. “In addition to excellence in business, these pioneering entrepreneurs have demonstrated a deep commitment to and passion for their communities, which significantly impact the well-being of their local economies.”
