Instruments of Change: Business & Technology Awards 2017

By CGT Staff - 12/21/2017

Saluting a year’s worth of exemplary consumer goods executives and organizations.

Here at CGT, we begin each year by seeking nominations for five awards that honor consumer goods executives and companies that have envisioned and executed transformational business and technology initiatives. The goal is to recognize achievements that not only have improved individual organizations, but which have the potential to inspire the industry at large.

And then we conclude each year here in the December issue by showcasing the award winners. They’ve been announced previously at various CGT events, but here’s where the industry learns how they earned their trophies.
