In 2012, nearly 450 local and statewide leaders attended the event, including Gov. Rick Snyder, who delivered a speech about a new talent-matching initiative to help align education with jobs.
Past winners of Executive of the Year include: Michelle and Aaron Crumm of Adaptive Materials Inc. (2011), Serial entrepreneur Jeff Williams (2010), Esperion Therapeutics CEO Roger Newton (2008), former Pfizer site leader David Canter (2007), McKinley CEO Albert Berriz (2006).
The Ann Arbor Business Review — whose brand was absorbed by AnnArbor.com when it launched in summer 2009 — created the Deals of the Year event in 2005.
