IB’s award programs honor the best in biz

From the pages of In Business magazine.

In this issue of In Business, we have the privilege of acknowledging eight individuals in two separate award/recognition programs. One is a new awards program called “Women of Industry,” where we honor five women who have made extraordinary impact within their respective industries. The other is a long-standing recognition program called the “In Business Executive Hall of Fame,” where we induct a new class of members into a highly accomplished group of executives who have changed the Madison business landscape.

I encourage you to check out both of these features. Also, please make it a point to sign up for our IB Ezine (subscribe at ibmadison.com/ezine) so that you can enjoy in-depth articles on each of the “Women of Industry” and “Executive Hall of Fame” honorees throughout November. Each of their stories is inspiring not only because of their career accomplishments, but also because these amazing leaders are part of the Greater Madison community. 

Which brings us to a couple of other recognition programs  whose deadlines are approaching quickly. In February, we will present our third annual Executive of the Year awards, recognizing area executives based on their leadership, innovation, and 2015 company success. Program details, including nomination materials, can be found at ibmadison.com/executiveoftheyear.

The other recognition program coming to the pages of In Business is our very popular 40 Under 40. In March, we’ll unveil our 16th class of some of the brightest young business stars in Greater Madison. The application can be filled out online at ibmadison.com/40under40. The only rule is that you have to be under the age of 40 on March 1, 2016.

Deadlines for both programs are Nov. 15, so please act fast to fill out the applications in order to be considered!
