What makes BEYA so valuable is that they select the best of the best, and recognize the work of a lifetime. Each year, BEYA judges select nominees from a talented pool of promising college students, new hires, mid-career professionals and managers, C-suite executives, innovators, inventors, and change agents. For more than 30 years, the judges have administered the selection process with integrity and distinction. We thank the 2019 judges for their dedication and selfless contribution.
