Alaska Business Top 49ers: Honoring Alaska’s Key Players
Alaska Business has celebrated Alaska’s Top 49ers since 1985. There are multiple ways to measure success, but one that’s pretty standard in any industry is if the business is making money. So while all of the Alaska Business Top 49ers provide quality products and services, create job opportunities, and support their communities, annually in our October issue we rank them based on gross revenue. The 49ers span Alaska’s major business sectors, including Alaska Native, transportation, oil and gas, finance, construction, and retail.
We will be celebrating these business at our annual Top 49ers Luncheon, this year taking place on September 27 at the Anchorage Marriott Downtown, where we will be joined by representatives and executives from Alaska’s top companies.
