The ten winners were chosen from 48 local nominees and represent individuals from a wide range of backgrounds, professions and experiences, all of whom are both accomplished professionals and servant leaders.

Publisher and Editorial Director Regina Barkley says, “An independent panel of four judges included a previous Atlanta Business Chronicle 40Under40 winner, a retired executive director of the Roswell Convention & Visitors Bureau, a member of a philanthropic Roswell family with of service to this community, and a 2+ decades owner of a respected Canton Street business. They had an extremely tough job choosing only ten, as the pool of nominees was comprised of truly outstanding individuals.”
