Kenny Kinley Selected For Arkansas Business Top 250

Kenny Kinley was named to the 2020 edition of the Arkansas 250, a list of influencers impacting various professional and nonprofit endeavors at the local, regional, and state levels. 

Each year Arkansas Business compares notes with executives and leaders from every region and each major industry category in the state. They intentionally research and research board of directors lists for publicly traded companies, universities, and nonprofit organizations. Their team deep dive into reporting from media outlets, including Arkansas Business, into identifying the business, political, and quality of life stories that mattered most. The list includes people actively plotting the course of our state. 

The final list, published by Arkansas Business, is the top 250 people in Arkansas who shape how we live, work, learn, and do business. 

We recognize and congratulate all the distinguished AR250 honorees and Contemporary Legends. 

And on behalf of all of us at Edafio, thank you, Kenny, for the inspiration you give us as you continue to seek new knowledge and navigate changes and challenges with trust and optimism.
