Last week, on the final Monday of 2022, Arkansas Business subscribers received the 2022 Book of Lists, a compilation of dozens of the business lists we published in 2022 in a single, indispensable reference book for doing business in the Natural State. This week, we start 2023 by compiling another of our regular features: Executive Q&A.
Week after week, we approach executives from businesses large and small, nonprofits and even government agencies, and we ask them to answer questions about their organizations, their industries and themselves. It is a way for all of us — you and our reporting staff — to get better acquainted with the people, businesses and industries that make up the business community that is our common interest. These are people you buy from and sell to, or maybe you should. Or they may be your competitors, and there’s nothing more valuable than knowing what the competition is thinking.
I owe a big thank-you to all of the executives who agreed to participate in this feature last year. It is a compliment to Arkansas Business — and to our audience — that they agreed to help make our publication more valuable to readers.
The Executive Q&A will continue throughout 2023. If you know of someone who would make a worthy subject, email me at email@example.com.
