While employees follow the path of a company’s mission, the chief executive officer leads the way. Idaho Business Review annually honors a group of chief executive officers in Idaho for their leadership, integrity, values, vision, commitment to excellence, financial performance, community involvement and diversity, and above all – influence.

“These are the business leaders in our state,” said IBR Publisher and Vice President Sean Evans. “Not only do they represent the top tier of our business community, they make a difference in Idaho. They are pillars in our communities and represent what this award is all about.”

The CEOs of influence for 2013 are Bea Black, Women’s and Children’s Alliance; Tim Bundgard, Pioneer Title; Jim Cleary, MWI Veterinary Supply; Sally Jeffcoat, Saint Alphonsus Health System; and Bob Lokken, White Cloud Analytics.

“These leaders are helping move Idaho forward,” said IBR managing editor Anne Wallace Allen. “Their influence shapes  many businesses and individuals in the valley and the state at large.”

The CEOs will be recognized at an awards event and their stories will be featured in a special magazine published in the May 10 issue of IBR. The ticketed event is May 9 at the Boise Centre. It is open to the public and includes a networking reception, dinner and award ceremony. For event details, click here:
