Columbus CEO named four winners and 12 finalists in its annual CEO of the Year issue.

Four well-known Central Ohio executives have been named as the 2019 CEOs of the Year by Columbus CEO, the sister publication to Columbus Monthly.

The four, and 12 finalists, were selected through a survey of area CEOs, presidents, executive directors, managing partners and other C-suite executives. The ballots were populated by suggestions from local chambers of commerce and other business organizations.

The magazine's ninth annual CEO of the Year project also includes an analysis of the local economic environment and business conditions, based on the survey of executives in the private, public and nonprofit sectors across the Columbus metropolitan area during the month of September. Results were analyzed by Columbus-based Regionomics, a firm focused on economic development strategy and local economies, and its principal, Bill LaFayette.
