Position:Special section: 2012 CORPORATE 100 - Geographic overview

Congratulations to this year's Corporate 100. Help us salute and honor these top citizens of industry that we've highlighted in this annual special section of companies doing business in our great state. These 100 companies employ 63,782 in Alaska, and, taking into account parent company and global presence data, the number of jobs rises to more than 1.48 million--not to mention the billions of dollars in revenues generated.
