Insight and inspiration provide an edge that everybody can use in today’s business climate. Both can be found by listening to people who have become business leaders. That is the driving force behind the SNEWS Power Players -- an honor that acknowledges outdoor industry leaders for varied accomplishments in different industry sectors. Contemplate their words to discover useful advice, tap into your own motivation, or find humorous and wise ways to overcome challenges.

Announced in the 2010 SNEWS Winter Outdoor magazine, just out and also available at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market Jan. 21-24, 2010, the Power Players Top 10 includes a group of people who rose to the top from nominations by our readers and from our editors.

Each person is an innovator in business practices and one whom others look to for advice and inspiration.

This year’s Top 10 SNEWS Power Players are, in no particular order:

Sue Rechner

Gordon Seabury

Sally McCoy

Paul Kirwin

Rion Smith

Larry Pluimer

Peter Whittaker

Kim Coupounas

Sutton Bacon

Amy Roberts

Keep in mind that the SNEWS Power Players list is an annual honor -- one we have found after just one year is already highly anticipated and keeps the industry talking. Stay abreast of SNEWS so when we ask for nominations in fall 2010 for the next class of SNEWS Power Players, your choice gets noticed!

If you missed our first class of Power Players in 2009, take a look here to see those winners and their interviews. And don’t miss the extra insights shared by the 2009 class in our Power Players Lounge where each shared thoughts on the industry and improving business based on their expertise.
