Biz New Orleans magazine – a national award-winning monthly business publication – will publish the inaugural edition of the New Orleans 500, a book profiling the most influential leaders in greater New Orleans.

The deadline to submit a nomination has passed.

Thanks to everyone who filled out the suggestion form.

The Biz New Orleans editorial team is now hard at work researching and writing profiles of the area executives who are innovating, creating, leading, succeeding and giving back to the community. When it’s available in the fourth quarter of this year, the New Orleans 500 will be a snapshot of influential businesspeople divided into categories that reflect the New Orleans economy. Included in the publication will be photos, bios and creative fun facts designed to showcase a bit about the people behind the titles.
