Who in Minnesota can you turn to for help in meeting and exceeding your goals this year? Read on!

This is the 2014 Black Book, the 12th edition of our new and improved version of our annual publication of top 25 lists we called the Business Information Guide, or B.I.G. Book. Compared with similar publications, ours has been by far the most accurate and thorough in Minnesota.

And it still is. This year’s directory contains fact-filled lists, from the 25 largest companies, advertising agencies and commercial banks to private companies, IT consultants and MBA programs.

This year, however, we introduced our first-ever Twin Cities Business Person of the Year as well. Follow this link to learn why Duluth Mayor Don Ness received the honor.

In addition, senior editor Adam Wahlberg included short profiles on the 100 people you should know in this state, ranging from emerging trailblazers to established executives at our largest corporations. They also include key business influencers and the leaders of our region’s most respected companies and organizations across all sectors, from real estate and technology to PR firms and colleges and universities.

Welcome to the Twin Cities Business Black Book. Click the links below and to the right to read about the 100 people, and companies, you’ll want to know about, and possibly get to know, in the months ahead.
