Power can be defined in different ways.
Influence. Respect. Skill. Effectiveness.
The Philadelphia Business Journal editorial team sat down this summer to compile our annual Power 100 list and set out to identify the movers and shakers displaying many of those characteristics.
We, as you would imagine, ultimately came up with a list of more than 100 names. The staff engaged in several spirited discussions and voted on what is now the final list.
From high-powered CEOs and dealmakers to a coffee roaster and owner of a wildly popular South Philadelphia taco shop, the goal of the list is to offer a snapshot in time of those having an impact on the region. The staff also compiled a separate list of 20 power players in the public sector.
The significance of the names on both lists cannot be overlooked: Many are at the helm of some of the area’s largest employers, leading emerging companies or crafting policies that will impact us all.
In short, they hold the power to shape the look and feel of Philadelphia and its surrounding region for years to come.
