Welcome to the 2014 Hospitality Who’s Who special section.
Each year we bring you the top 100 names and faces of those who make it their business to welcome the world to metro Atlanta.
To put together this guide, we drew from our annual Book of Lists and include names from our top companies by category. Inside, you’ll find leaders of top hotels and attractions in the area, as well as the leaders of area convention and visitor bureaus; leaders of top arts and entertainment companies and venues; executives of Atlanta’s top sports teams, their arenas and stadiums; leaders of some of the area’s major festivals; top industry association directors; and leaders of some of the top restaurant groups. We also include industry leaders who make significant contributions within the hospitality industry.
