Celebrating 40 years of the Deloitte Cincinnati 100

Powering our economy, strengthening our community since 1983

Private companies play a critical role in our economy. Deloitte, Great American Insurance Group, and The Cincinnati Enquirer are proud to recognize leading private companies in the Cincinnati area. Select growing companies receive the Rising Star award and one local business leader is honored with the Carl H. Lindner Award for Entrepreneurial and Civic Spirit.

Recognizing leading private companies in the Cincinnati Tri-State Region

“The Cincinnati 100 program serves as a benchmark for private companies to achieve excellence. The program is a barometer for capital formation, evolving marketplace, and leading talent recognition across industries. The importance of privately held companies to Cincinnati’s economy cannot be overstated; I truly believe they are the foundation upon which our economic and civic well-being are built.”

-Tom Plaut, Deloitte private leader, Cincinnati marketplace
