Mayor Rahm Emanuel, for instance, would have been a natural for the top five not so long ago, but now he’s a private citizen, hitting the national punditry circuit. Senate President John Cullerton is retiring, closing a chapter on the storied Cullerton political clan in Chicago. Julia Stasch, longtime head of the MacArthur Foundation and a familiar face on boards across the city, retired from her role this fall. Lori Healy, a fixture in and around City Hall—most recently at the Metropolitan Pier & Exposition Authority—has exited for the private sector.7072彩票开户 7073彩票地址 963彩票开户 7073彩票网址 689彩票邀请码 7073彩票注册 8炫彩彩票app 677彩票开户 7073彩票登录 66顺彩票app
This ranking of the 25 most influential leaders in Chicago would have looked a lot different a year ago. Such is the fleeting nature of clout in these turbulent times.

C-suite power has shifted as well: Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenberg is under the microscope, having lost his chairmanship role after two 737 Max crashes left hundreds dead. McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook was fired after a consensual relationship with an employee. Local health care companies and hospitals have seen an exodus of leadership as well.
Then there’s the dragnet column. Ald. Ed Burke—previously chairman of the City Council’s Finance Committee and one of Chicago’s most prolific political fundraisers—has been one of the first casualties of the man who now occupies No. 4 on Crain’s power list. And one of Illinois’ most powerful women, Anne Pramaggiore, has stepped down both as a senior executive at Exelon and as chair of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago as the feds scrutinize the lobbying practices of Exelon and its Commonwealth Edison subsidiary.
This snapshot of the city’s current top 25 power players takes into account factors including sphere of influence, access to capital, corporate and civic connections, and old-fashioned newsworthiness. By winnowing this list to 25 rather than, say, 50, the editors left aside certain long-standing business titans such as billionaire civic booster Joe Mansueto, as well as rising stars such as the YWCA of Chicago’s Dorri McWhorter. Might those names appear on a 2020 ranking? As we have seen, a lot can change in 12 months.
This ranking is published as part of The Book, Crain's annual compendium of information and data on the people, companies and organizations powering Chicago's economy.7072彩票开户 7073彩票地址 963彩票开户 7073彩票网址 689彩票邀请码 7073彩票注册 8炫彩彩票app 677彩票开户 7073彩票登录 66顺彩票app
