The awards were intended to recognize the people who work behind the scenes to make their organizations run smoothly. “The work they do — and the occasional miracle they perform — are critical to a successful organization,” said Business Journal Editor and Associate Publisher Brad Bollinger. “And their work very often goes unrecognized publicly — until now.”
The 12 recipients from wine, high-tech, commercial real estate, heavy manufacturing, finance, food processing and higher education were selected by the Journal editorial staff from nominations solicited in spring.
The awards are underwritten by Trope Group, TLCD Architecture and Scott Technology Group.

- Michael Adams, Mendocino College, Ukiah
