These five local leaders in the business community do more than just grow their own businesses—they contribute to Madison’s extraordinary history of doing well by doing good.
Madison Magazine has always recognized the impact that our region’s business community has had on life in our city. The very pages of this magazine each month have reflected that intersection of lifestyle and business and the many ways each enhances the other. As we enter our 40th year of telling the stories that define that unique relationship, we add five more names to the list of 71 Best of Madison Business honorees.
Their business acumen, stewardship and community trusteeship have contributed to Madison’s extraordinary history of doing well by doing good. In 2018, we recognize Gary Gorman’s commitment to sustainable, responsible, affordable housing; Robert N. Trunzo’s vision for a consciously capitalist financial services company; Susan and Jonathon Lipp’s family-driven philanthropy and contributions to education, music and early development; and Greg St. Fort’s passion for innovation and community building. They encompass today’s Madison business climate and culture. Each in their own individual way is the Best of Madison.
