RBJ’s Power 100

By: Rochester Business Journal Staff February 25, 2022

We are excited to continue our Power List project this year after a successful debut in 2021.

We kick off our series of lists with the Power 100. Many people who appeared on this list last year are still significant power players in our region and appear here again. But there are several new faces, and we expect to see those additions continue to make a big impact on our community.

As with last year, the mix of industries represented is no surprise.

The health care industry and the nonprofit sector, which are heavily intertwined in Rochester, played critical roles in helping our community get through two years of COVID-19 and many leaders from these areas appear on this list.

Banking and finance, education, law, manufacturing, technology, and real estate and construction also have a significant presence here and in our local economy.

Over the rest of the year, as we did last year, we will delve deeper into several of these industries — banking and finance, health care, law, real estate and construction, and technology — with Power 30 lists that will allow us to highlight more people who are working to make an impact in Rochester.

As with previous Power Lists, rather than tell you about all of these power players’ accomplishments and accolades, we decided to give them a chance to tell you more about themselves through their answers to a few different questions. For anyone who was unable to complete our questionnaire, we put together a small profile.

The Power 100 is presented in alphabetical order; selecting 100 power players was hard enough without trying to rank them. We are optimistic that the people and organizations listed here will play a large role in helping Rochester continue to move forward and shape its “new normal.” We also look forward to seeing who steps up even more over the next year to earn a spot on the 2023 Power 100.

We know that any endeavor such as this is sure to generate lots of opinions, and not everyone will agree with our choices. I welcome any feedback you have at
