Theresa Maldonado – University of Texas at El Paso

In 1976, during her freshman year at Georgia’s Macon Junior College, Theresa Maldonado sat down for a meeting with her math professor. She can still picture the classroom, where the window was and how the light hit the floor at her feet. Mostly, though, she remembers the sinking feeling. “The message was, ‘Women don’t belong […]

This Latina movement has found its groove

Forget what you know. Forget the hot-headed temperament, the accent. Forget what you’ve read in the news about immigrants snatching up American jobs. While you’re at it, forget the O. It’s Latina, not Latino. Women are telling this story. About time, say Ana Masacote and six other women who, after six months of organizing, recently […]

Tim McCoy – The London Company

Don’t ask the folks at The London Company to predict the future—even a little bit. That’s just not what they do. Instead, their approach is deliberate, measured and simple. Rather than jumping at the shiniest new objects—say, the trendiest and latest IPOs—and essentially betting on uncertainty, their focus is on purchasing companies with sustainable competitive […]

Todd Hurley – City of St. Paul

To most driving by, the 125-acre plot along St. Paul’s Mississippi River banks looks like nothing more than a blank earthen canvas—the hole where a beating, pumping Ford plant used to be. Todd Hurley sees the masterpiece to come, and the heart of a 21st century community years in the making. He sees the potential […]

Todd McTavish

It was a game-changer, for sure. Last May’s Murphy vs. NCAA case in which the Supreme Court by a 6-3 vote left it up to the states to decide whether they would join Nevada, Delaware, Oregon and Montana in legalizing sports betting and dealing with its ramifications. Could be a sizable pot of money with […]

Tom McCabe – BWX Technologies Inc.

In 2014, before he’d even finished decorating the office, Tom McCabe sat down with Dave Thompson, the CEO of his new employer, Orbital Sciences, for his first major assignment: helping the $1.3 billion defense contractor acquire rocket parts maker ATK, a company three times Orbital’s size. Following months of legal legwork, Orbital was able to […]

Tonica Kombucha

This just might be the story about the little engine that could. Almost literally. For just a decade ago, Zoey Shamai was moving one case of empty bottles at a time by bicycle, between a Toronto warehouse and her very congested apartment kitchen, where she was brewing her own take of a unique organic health […]

Tony McKim – First National Bank

In the era where the phrase “financial services” conjures up images of shadowy conglomerates, First National Bank is a refreshing reminder that banking can be local and community-minded. Headquartered in Damariscotta, Maine, First National Bank has been in town since 1864. More than 150 years later, it has 16 branches throughout Maine and over $1.5 […]

Total Seed Production

The early part of 2019 brought an unforgiving winter to the Heartland, but Aaron Conaway knew it would lift. Always does, of course, and when you measure the 12 months in quarters, the next one is never far away. So for Conaway, president and co-owner of one of the nation’s largest  single facility producers of […]

Unified Ag Solutions

Roger Nesbitt tried, really tried, to retire, but he just couldn’t do it. “I was bored to death,” he recalls. It was only a few weeks before the stir-craziness got to be too much and he just had to get back to work. Simply put, “I was looking for a new venture to get into, […]
