On Nov. 18, Fortune magazine will name its Businessperson of the Year, an honor that goes to the leader who made the biggest mark in business in 2010. We talk to analysts and consultants, executives and former executives, those moving markets and those playing them. Then we compile and pore over the numbers to help narrow down the field. But the one thing we're missing is what the readers think. So we want you in on the decision.
We start with 32 contenders, seeded and matched-up by the editors of Fortune. Go through each contest and pick which leader you think made a bigger impact in 2010. You must select a winner in each bracket to submit your results. At the end of the week, we'll close voting, find the winners, and return Monday with a new round, repeating until the winner is revealed on Monday, November 8th.
Once you've cast your vote, tweet your picks. Use the hashtag #bpoy and your tweet will show up on this page. Check back regularly to see who is winning and get your friends and co-workers to vote. We'll also be tweeting results from @fortunemagazine and will be doing regular updates on our Facebook page.
