Yellowhammer Multimedia on Friday announced that the annual POWER & INFLUENCE 40 and Yellowhammer 15 features will return in the coming weeks after a hiatus amid the coronavirus pandemic last year.
For the past decade, Yellowhammer has released an annual list of the most powerful and influential people in Alabama business and politics. That tradition lives on through a format newly introduced when the lists were last published in 2019.
The POWER & INFLUENCE 40 list recognizes the top individuals in government and politics who leverage their power and influence to better the Yellowhammer State.
Meanwhile, the Yellowhammer 15 is the preeminent honor for those in the private sector that are moving Alabama forward to better days.
Through job creation, economic impact, community involvement and philanthropic endeavors, these exemplary leaders in their professional fields make our great state a better place to live, work and raise a family.
Unlike the Power & Influence 40 list, a person can be recognized in the Yellowhammer 15 only once in a lifetime. And, not only will this honor be exclusive, the accumulation of inductees over time will compile a “hall of fame” type list synonymous with the pinnacle of professional and civic achievement.
Be on the lookout for both lists being published in the coming weeks.
