We're fortunate in Maine to have business leaders that show a combination of vision, grit and socially responsible management. Yet Mainebiz is proud to present four business leaders we think demonstrate those traits at an exceptionally high level. From a business with $1 billion in sales and 2,700 employees to one with $6 million in sales and 35 employees, to a college that is bridging the town-to-gown divide, these leaders aren't afraid to take risks. And they're delivering. We think you'll agree these leaders are making our state stronger and better.
