2011 Outstanding Directors

Honoring corporate board members Ronald James, Karen Bohn, Robert Lumpkins, Robert Marzec, and Alice Richter.

October 1, 2011

Twin Cities Business is once again proud to honor a group of experienced, insightful people who have helped make the companies on whose boards they’ve served to run more effectively for their customers, shareholders, and employees. All are experienced business leaders who understand the challenges that company leaders confront. And all are passionate lifelong learners who have combined their insights and curiosity to help craft creative ways to meet those challenges.  

This is the 16th year that Twin Cities Business has honored top local-company directors. Once again, the magazine worked with a remarkable panel of judges. They were David Fisher, Minnesota Regional Chapter president of the National Association of Corporate Directors; Kenneth Goodpaster, chair of business ethics, University of St. Thomas; Linda Hall Keller, entrepreneur in residence, Carlson School of Management; Steve Zenz, retired partner of audit for Minnesota and Iowa, KPMG; Mark Sheffert, chairman and CEO, Manchester Companies, Inc.; and Dale Kurschner, editor in chief, Twin Cities Business.
