The list, produced by the publishers of Minnesota Monthly, celebrates leading business executives across a variety of industries for the impact they are making in their business communities and for their thought leadership in their respective fields. Individuals included in the Minnesota 500 ranking were selected from an initial group of more than 7,000 executives. Finalists were selected based on the following criteria:
- The impact each executive has had/is having on their industry (both in their current or prior roles)
- The success and impact the company itself has had/is having under their leadership
- Special awards or accolades both in their professional and/or personal lives
- Participation in community/philanthropic endeavors
- Position on boards
Only 24 attorneys were named to the list, and Hellmuth & Johnson is honored to be the only firm to have two attorneys selected.
