Her newspaper legacies include, “The Fifty Richest” series, naming the area’s 50 richest people and their net worth; “The Birmingham 100”, listing the top private companies and their revenues; the “Top 40 Under 40” series, naming the up and coming stars all under the age of 40 (now copied in all U.S. major markets); the “Fast Track 25”, ranking the fastest growing companies in the area; and the “Best in Business” awards.
