If the young professional scene in Columbus has a mantra, it’s “attract and retain.” Mayor Michael Coleman, the Columbus Chamber and a slew of groups and agencies Ã¯Â¿Â½ both officially and unofficially Ã¯Â¿Â½ are working to show the world that this is a great place to call home. Of course, those of us who call Columbus home already know that. The challenge isn’t so much what this city needs, as what the world needs to know about this city and its enormous potential.
Which brings us to People to Watch. Every week in Alive we write about the local arts and music scenes, restaurants, fashion, green issues, Downtown development and networking groups that are connecting young professionals. Now we want to introduce you to the people who are actually making these things happen.
The following profiles of 11 current and future Columbus leaders Ã¯Â¿Â½ and the things they’ve accomplished, and the things they aspire to accomplish Ã¯Â¿Â½ are truly astounding.
