Arkansas Business of the Year 1990.

ARKANSAS BUSINESS of the Year 1990

The nominations have been sent, the forms filed and the judges have done their work. Everything has been done except for the drum roll, which will take place Feb. 7 at the Excelsior Hotel to announce Arkansas Business of the Year and Arkansas Business Executive of the Year. While we won't divulge the winner, we will let you in on the finalists.

Below are listed the 15 companies and five executives chosen as finalists in the third annual Arkansas Business of the Year awards. Nominations for the award were solicited from September through November. From the nominations, 27 entries for business of the year and nine entries for executive of the year were chosen.

Judges for this year's competition were selected in five different categories. Barbara Graves owns Barbara Graves Intimate Fashions in Little Rock; Paul McGinnis serves as director of the Small Business Development Center; Susan Sisk, an accountant and banker, serves Twin City Bank as senior vice president; James Hall serves as director of the minority development division of the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission; and Jerry Wilson, a marketing professional, is president of Dale Carnegie.

What kind of credentials are needed to be awarded Arkansas Business of the Year? According to our criteria, the business naturally has to be Arkansas based. We exclude companies or subsidiaries with more than 350 employees. A solid reputation in the community and their industry is a must, and the business must have a solid financial background. It is an added plus if the business shows innovation by selling a new product or doing something a new way. Finally, the business must show growth since its establishment.

Tickets for the event are available through Arkansas Business for $30 per person. Join us Feb. 7 as we cheer on the best in Arkansas business.
