The winners of this year’s Inside Memphis Business Innovation Awards were honored at a breakfast and awards ceremony Wednesday, Sept. 20 at the University of Memphis Holiday Inn on Central Avenue.
With all the brilliance around town, it was a gratifying job for the judges who found the level of innovation by the winners to be particularly high. The finalists have made material contributions to our quality of life and even to saving lives.
IMB honored (clockwise from top left) Julie Romine and the staff of Habitat for Humanity for its Aging in Place program, Dr. Brian Sorrentino of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for work done on the “Bubble Boy” disease, Charlie McVean (at right) and Charlie Newman for the Big River Crossing, and Dr. Giancarlo Mari of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center for the OB F.A.S.T. program.
Crucial to putting on the event were our sponsors, The Fogelman College of Business and Economics at the University of Memphis, Orion Federal Credit Union, and Travelennium.
Look for the stories on these innovators in IMB’s October/November issue coming soon.
