Welcome to the 2011 edition of San Diego's Top Influentials - SourceBook. This annual publication is filled with valuable information and data about viable San Diego County market segments.
As has been the case for several years, all the content found in this publication can also be viewed on our Web site at sddt.com/influentials. From there, you will find links to the 2011 Top Influential finalist profiles, all the SourceBook lists, videos of conversations with some of this year's Top Influentials and more. This site offers expanded data and information about the companies listed in the print version, as well as more businesses you won't see here due to space constraints.
The profiles in this publication -- and the many other leaders we profile every week -- also can be found by going directly to sddt.com/newsmakers.
This year The Daily Transcript once again shines the spotlight on the people who sustain our county's growth and prosperity. From more than 250 nominations, the Transcript editorial board selected 54 Top Influentials -- leaders who made an impact on the industry sectors that keep San Diego's economic engine running, including real estate, construction, technology and biotechnology, finance and more.
You will find their profiles in this book, along with lists of San Diego County businesses, broken down by industry and ranked by key criterion.
