Join us as we celebrate our 40th year of publication by looking back at the milestones of the past four decades.
You’ll share a chuckle as you reminisce over big-hair fashions of the ’80s and the dot-com dreams of the ’90s; you’ll shed a tear for Expo Ernie and Uncle Ben’s beer. But most of all, you’ll shake your head at how the business landscape has undergone a complete makeover in the past 40 years. Of the titans of business that led our first “Top Companies” list in 1973, not a single one survives today. Woodward’s and A&B Sound – once icons of local retail – now live only in our memories. All of which only serves to remind us that in business, innovation and change are the only constants we can count on.
