About the "15 Over 50" process: Nominations are submitted by colleagues and peers through Connect and BizBash's websites. They are then reviewed by our editors, and finalists are vetted before the final list is selected for publication. Honorees must be over the age of 50 as of Aug. 1, 2022. Job titles and responses reflect the honoree’s status as of Aug. 12, 2022.
While our features may be sponsored by standout companies, to ensure the list remains impartial, sponsors do not have the ability to review or curate any part of the list themselves.
