For the fifth straight year, Suku Radia, CEO of Bankers Trust Co., has been voted by Business Record readers as the Most Influential Business Leader in Greater Des Moines.

Radia topped the annual list of the top 25 influential leaders that appears in this year's 2017 Book of Lists.

The online survey of Business Record members, which was conducted in the summer of 2016, asked participants to identify the most influential leader and to pick nine other influential leaders.

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.
