We received an overwhelming response to our release this week of the Milwaukee Business Journal's 2018 power brokers list. Check out the attached slideshow to see all 100 power brokers, along with our lists of 10 young professional power brokers and 10 executives to watch.
All of the executives on our lists will be featured in our Dec. 7 issue where we will provide more information on why they are considered power brokers.
What is a power broker? These are the people who others turn to when they need to get something done, whether it's a business deal, community project or raising money for a great cause.
We put together this list, with input from our reporters and editors, along with many suggestions from Milwaukee Business Journal readers in answer to a call for suggestions that I put out in September.
We know there will be some in the community who either believe they should be on this list or that we missed someone who is their "power person." Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me on Twitter at @markkassmbj. We are especially looking for professionals under the age of 40 who we can also consider for our 2019 40 Under 40 program.
Someone on this list could also be our 2018 Executive of the Year. In fact, we are currently taking nominations for an executive in our region who has had a tremendous 2018 both with their company and in the community. We encourage you to submit a nomination here, or by sending me an email.
