Nominations now open for Axios Chicago Power Players

Graphic: Axios

We all have memories of the local businesses that shaped our upbringing, whether a shop we often visited with our parents, a dealership where we purchased our first car or the company whose name was emblazoned on our little league jerseys.

  • But those businesses wouldn't have left such impressions or had such lingering impact if they weren't powered by true community leaders.

What's happening: We know that at Axios, and that's why we're celebrating the biggest names, established leaders and rising stars in our business community in the second annual Axios Chicago Power Players list.

Why it matters: Business leaders shape our local economy and are often a force of good in our community. We're here to recognize the best of the best.

Participate: Nominate yourself or someone you know to be considered for a profile in this year's Axios Chicago Power Players list.

How it works: The Axios Chicago team will sift through each submission plus our own list of candidates and compile a final list of honorees.

  • Winners will be featured in Axios Chicago's special Power Players edition with a personalized profile.
  • Winners, nominees and members of the community are also invited to attend the Power Players reception for an opportunity to mingle with top business leaders in Chicago on December 6, 2023.
  • Nominations cost $250.
