For the second straight year, Suku Radia, president and CEO of Bankers Trust Co., has been voted by Business Record readers as the Most Influential Business Leader in the Metro area.Radia topped the annual list of Top-25 influential leaders that appears in this year’s 2014 Book of Lists.

The online survey of Business Record readers, which was conducted in September of 2013, asked participants who they thought the most influential leader is and asked them to pick nine other leaders that they thought were influential.

The votes were tallied and IP addresses were analyzed, much as we do for Best of Des Moines, to remove suspicious voting and obvious attempts to fraudulently influence rankings.
