In an effort to recognize business leaders and individuals who are moving southeast Michigan’s economy forward, we present the Champions of the New Economy. Developed by Junior Achievement of  Southeastern Michigan, which operates the Rock Financial J.A. Finance Park in downtown Detroit, the program was created in partnership with DBusiness magazine and News/Talk 760 WJR.

Please join us on the following pages as we honor five Champions of the New Economy.  We also invite you to a special ceremony honoring the champions at the Rock Financial J.A. Finance Park on Thursday, May 13, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
