Welcome to Folio:’s annual list of the people (and sometimes companies, trends, or important developments) that have had the most impact in the last 12 months. It’s true, no other list is as exclusive or requires such a high level of demonstrable impact.
The people here have had a measurable impact on their brands, their peers, their companies or the industry overall. At the same time, no other list is as inclusive: The Folio: 100 reaches across all areas of magazine-related media, from the business side and marketing to digital leaders and content creators, and from mass-consumer media to enthusiast brands, B2B, city and regional, and association media. In an era of major change and disruption, the people on the pages that follow are paving the way for success of the industry for years to come.
