The inaugural edition of Biz New Orleans’ guide to influential business leaders features more than 80 University of New Orleans alumni, as well as President John Nicklow and Rebecca Conwell, president and CEO of the UNO Research and Technology Foundation and The Beach at UNO.
The 136-page magazine, New Orleans 500, was released Monday (Nov. 22) and includes profiles and photos of “influential, involved and inspiring business leaders” who are driving the city’s economy and shaping the region’s future.
Inclusion in the magazine, according to Biz New Orleans magazine’s editors, is the result of staff research into every sector of the local economy to “identify executives who are innovating, creating, leading, succeeding and giving back to the community.”
The business sectors explored includes education, real estate, energy, manufacturing, maritime, technology, transportation/logistics, arts and entertainment, hospitality and tourism, finance, healthcare, public companies, nonprofits and professional services.
The University of New Orleans, the institution widely credited for having built the middle-class of New Orleans, has more than 47,000 alumni who live in metro New Orleans.
