 Omaha is known for its fantastic legacies—NP Dodge, First National Bank, Union Pacific, Kiewit, Mutual of Omaha, and many other storied companies based in Omaha.

One industry that has many legacy companies is auto dealerships. Local auto dealers, from H&H Auto Group to Beardmore, is the subject of one feature. These companies are experiencing some big shifts in their industry and thriving. How is the subject of one of our features.

People around the country often associate this city with Omaha Steaks. The notable company underwent a sudden leadership shift in February last year, and new CEO Todd Simon told B2B the company’s leadership planning was a big help in his transition to a new role.

Consulting, whether for human resources or IT, is a big business right now, and B2B talked to a couple of consulting firms as to why. This is the subject of our third feature.

The other feature is about the new president and CEO of the Greater Omaha Chamber, Veta Jeffery. She came to Omaha with a plethora of experience, and said she is excited about all the innovative ideas and projects happening around the city.

Another legacy company in Omaha is Noddle Companies—which has developed many properties and lots in the area. The next generation of this family-run entity, Sam Noddle, is working hard to help Omaha build and thrive. Sam is the subject of our On the Rise.

There’s a lot of great articles in our Legacy issue. I hope you enjoy them all.
