100 people to meet in 2023
Our annual list of Virginians you should get to know
It’s time to set your social calendar for 2023, and here are some Virginians you’ll want to introduce yourself to — Virginia Business’ fourth annual list of 100 people to meet in the new year.
Hailing from all parts of the state and representing a variety of industries and nonprofits, this year’s cohort includes Nightingale Ice Cream’s co-founders in Richmond, a tunnel boring machine engineer working on the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel, the publisher of The Rockbridge Advocate newspaper in Lexington and a Northrop Grumman exec heading up the team building the crew module for NASA’s next manned lunar mission. Oh, and don’t forget about the internet pioneer who lives on a sheep farm in Giles County. They all have interesting stories and are making a difference in the commonwealth.
And remember: Whether you’re meeting remotely or in person, it’s always a nice icebreaker to say, “I saw you in Virginia Business.”
