About Regional Men of Distinction
The Regional Men of Distinction award is a relatively new recognition that JRBJ gives to honor men in our communities who have dedicated their lives to making a difference in the worlds of business, civic activism and nonprofit philanthropy. The event was created in 2013 to augment JRBJ's Most Influential Women event, which is the Journal's longest-running honor. 
Accounting for this year's class, JRBJ has recognized a total of 38 Regional Men of Distinction - from CEOs and executive directors to superintendents and small-business owners.
