Cincom Founder and CEO Featured as One of the 300 Most Powerful Business Leaders in Cincinnati
Cincom founder and CEO, Thomas M. Nies, was recently featured as one of the 300 most power business leaders in Cincinnati. This special edition, which was produced by the publishers of Cincinnati Magazine, marks the publication’s first venture at ranking successful business leaders within the community.
According to Cincinnati Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, John Fox, “Given the growth in business activity and influence, it wasn’t difficult to identify 300 power business leaders to feature in this inaugural Cincinnati 300 publication. The real challenge came in limiting our scope to 300.”
You can find the biography on Mr. Nies on page 57, and page 50 shows a full-page ad that features a special “thank you” to Cincinnati for 50 great years.
