100 People to Meet in 2020
Our inaugural list of Virginians you should get to know this year
Please allow us to introduce you to 100 interesting, innovative and vital Virginians who make the Old Dominion a more vibrant place to live, work and play.
Some of the people you’ll meet in the following pages are folks we’ve reported on over the last year who left lasting impressions, like Suffolk restaurateur and community arts advocate Ed Beardsley. Others, like Block.one co-founder Daniel Larimer, have us intrigued to see what they’ll do next and how big their companies will grow. And then there are newsmakers like Amazon.com Inc.’s Ardine Williams who we expect will be key players to know going into the new decade.
This list is by no means meant to be comprehensive or exhaustive. These aren’t necessarily the most influential people in the commonwealth — although some absolutely are — but all are worthy of your time and attention and we encourage you to get out there and introduce yourselves to them.
“I saw you in Virginia Business!” is a good place to start.
