The Metro’s Most Influential Awards

Accepting nominations for influential leaders.

The Metro’s Most Influential Issue is the December/January edition of 405 Business Magazine that profiles the most influential leaders in central Oklahoma, across a wide spectrum of industries. Unprecedented in scope, The Metro’s Most Influential issue represents months of research, interviews and conversations with extensive, high-level contacts in the regional business community. The Metro’s Most Influential issue goes far beyond corporate bios to reveal the personal side of the leaders who drive the central economy and make it such a vibrant place to work and live. The primary criteria for inclusion on the list is how well the leader is using their influence for the greater good.

The Metro’s Most Influential is not an awards program or a vote-based list. All decisions are made by the editors; the number of recommendations an individual receives is not a consideration factor.

We are now accepting nominations for this inaugural list of The Metro’s Most Influential. Click the button below to submit your nominations. Nominations will run through August 1, 2022.
