“SCN’s annual Top 50 recognition has long been a practical reference for a multitude of stakeholders to understand the key players and organizational shifts across the industry.” Shared Byron Tarry, CEO of GPA globally. “It has also been an annual opportunity also a chance for those within the recognized companies to celebrate the role they have played in their own organization’s growth.
