“Atlanta magazine has the ability to tell you something you’ve never known about people you know, while introducing you to people you may never have heard of but should know…”

Atlanta magazine releases its first annual special publication, The Atlanta 500, recognizing 500 of Atlanta’s top leaders including well-known legends who have shaped the city. The Atlanta 500 recognizes the most influential Atlantans—including not just corporate CEOs, but also the people who shape what we eat, the music we listen to, and the causes we embrace.

“CEOs of our city’s largest corporations or firms’ top producers were likely candidates; but we also looked to see if those achievers were plugged into the city—serving on nonprofit boards, spearheading programs for their communities, and creating opportunities for their employees,” said Betsy Riley, Editor in Chief of Atlanta magazine.

The Atlanta 500 is comprised of eight categories:

  • Business
  • Professionals
  • Real Estate
  • Government & Infrastructure
  • Arts, Sports & Entertainment
  • Education & Healthcare
  • Restaurants & Hospitality
  • Religion, Nonprofits & Advocacy

Atlanta magazine’s editors spent months consulting experts across different sectors while also taking into consideration nominations from the public.

“One of our former longtime editors used to say Atlanta magazine has the ability to tell you something you’ve never known about people you know, while introducing you to people you may never have heard of but should know—it’s in this spirit that we introduce our readers to The Atlanta 500,” said Sean McGinnis, President and Publisher of Atlanta magazine.
