Successful organizations take their cues from, and are influenced by, their leaders. That’s why Idaho Business Review annually honors a select group of Idaho CEOs for their leadership, integrity, values, vision, commitment to excellence, financial performance, community involvement and diversity, and, above all – influence.

“Not only do they represent the top tier of Idaho’s business community, they make a difference,” Idaho Business Review Publisher and Vice President Sean Evans said. “They are titans of business and pillars in our communities. They live, breathe, and walk the talk. They are what this award is all about.”

The CEOs of Influence for 2014 are Sylvia Hampel, president, Clear View Cleaning; Charley Jones, president, Stinker Stores Inc.; Scott Kreiling, president, Regence BlueShield of Idaho; Connie Miller, president and CEO, Icon Credit Union; Chris Taylor, president and CEO, Fisher’s Technology and Bill Whitacre, president and CEO, J.R. Simplot Company.

The CEOs will be recognized at an awards event and their stories will be featured in a

special magazine published in the May 23 issue of Idaho Business Review.

The ticketed event is May 22 at the Boise Centre with Perkins Coie as the presenting sponsor. The event is open to the public
