Top Citizens of Industry--Alaska Business Monthly's 2014 Corporate 100.

Position:SPECIAL SECTION: Corporate 100--Top Citizens of Industry

We salute the 2014 Corporate 100--Top Citizens of Industry! Something the companies have in common from year-to-year is a commitment to community and volunteerism. This year is no exception. In addition, these corporations share the business acumen to make an economic impact across the state. As usual, we have a sampling of companies from more than a dozen economic sectors represented in the Corporate 100.

The number of employees ranges wide, from the likes of Providence Health & Services Alaska (4,229) and Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (4,175) to Line Energy (20) and Foss Maritime Company (24). Some companies aren't headquartered here, but have been established in Alaska for many years, since 1867 in the case of Alaska Commercial Co., 1922 in the case of Foss.

Also established in 1922 is First National Bank Alaska, a shining example of a company headquartered in the state. About a quarter of the companies have been doing business in Alaska since before statehood. That's staying power.

We added a topic to the survey this year and received an overwhelming response, so "Economic Impact of the Corporate 100" is presented later in this special section. Congratulations to Alaska Business Monthly's 2014 Corporate 100: Top Citizens of Industry!
