Willie Hamilton, chief executive, CMJ

“The CMJ is dedicated to helping businesses achieve excellence through support, networking and creating exclusive opportunities for our members. So naturally it makes sense for us to sponsor the Business Big Shots category of the Hot 100, which I am delighted to introduce you to now. Each person on this list has powered through the past year to win a place on this list and are an example to us all. There is a Business Big Shot in each of us. Let the CMJ help you find yours.”
