THIS IS OUR FIRST ANNUAL Indiana Business Book of Lists, a statewide compilation of the leaders in 29 categories. For years we have admired the Indianapolis Business Journal's Book of Lists but felt many companies around the state needed to be listed. Readers may notice some conspicuously missing entries. Some chose not to participate or did not respond by our deadline, but we feel we have credible, researched listings. Please email us suggestions for additional entries or other lists to consider at bol@indianabusiness.com.
