Vol. 20, No. 3 A Special Supplement to the Charleston Regional Business Journal

I

of

have the pleasure of kicking off each new year by introducing our annual Book of Lists. Now in its 18th year of publication, I’m happy to say that it continues to grow along with the region. I don’t have any empirical measurements on growth to quote. I’ll defer that until the summer when the Book of Lists’ companion publication, Market Facts, hits the streets. I’m merely measuring regional growth the old-fashioned way — looking out the car window. The streets are full of cars with out-ofstate plates, so tourism looks good. The skyline is dotted with cranes, so construction must be picking up. Why, even the Realtors are starting to smile again. Could it be we are on a roll?    Putting together the Book of Lists continues to be a complex endeavor, and the end result is a publication that will help you build your business as well as find the services you need to enhance your operations. Under the “Resources” tab at www.charlestonbusiness.com, you will find the electronic version of our Lists & Leads. You can maximize your ability to take advantage of that effort by using our specialized software. Online, you can add your own data and re-key your listing as changes occur within your company. Keeping your data current is important because paid subscribers are able to download lists as Excel spreadsheets, view lists in PDF format and use a Google Maps search option all year long. Since we now cover the state, Lists & Leads subscribers also have access to Columbia, Upstate and statewide information online. And remember, there are editions of the Book of Lists from GSA Business and the Columbia Regional Business Report in print.  As the book grows, navigation among lists and sections becomes even more important, so we have continued to use color coding and tabs to make lists easier to find. Each section has its own color tab, President and and section titles are at the top of each page and within the tabs in the margins. There also is an index of Group Publisher lists in the back. I again want to express how gratifying it is to have the continued support of our sponsors and advertisers, most of whom have been with us for years. Our sponsors and advertisers play a vital role in enabling us to continue to devote an increasing amount of resources to improving this publication; and you can learn about these forward-thinking companies on the About Our Sponsors section on page 3. Our title sponsors BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina, Certus Bank, the Town of Mount Pleasant, Trident Health and Trident Technical College deserve another round of applause for continuing to have the vision to provide this vital resource to the business community.  On behalf of the entire staff, I hope the 2014 Book of Lists continues to be a useful and essential part of your business, and we welcome your feedback on new lists to include for 2015.

ach year, I look forward to the Charleston Regional Business Journal’s Book of Lists. It’s a great way to check in on how Lowcountry businesses have grown and to learn more about our many resources. It is also a wonderful “go to” guide that serves all of us throughout the year. As a business leader, I am grateful to the CRBJ for their phenomenal effort in assembling the data and keeping us informed and up to date. Health care reform has been on everyone’s minds this past year. Trident Health, and most likely all of our health care neighbors, face significant challenges and uncertainties about how health reform and health policy will affect the provision of care. But I can safely say that Trident Health will always remain focused on providing quality health care at the lowest cost possible. We have considerable plans for growth and expansion in the coming years, constantly working on providing health care technologies and services that our residents need and deserve. Trident Medical Center, Summerville Medical Center and Moncks Corner Medical Center — along with their many affiliated physicians and medical practices — will continue to serve the community with a sense of gratitude. We are privileged to serve the residents of this beautiful and vibrant region and look forward to continuing our business relationships with you. Thank you for making the Lowcountry a great place to call home.

W

e’re pleased to once again sponsor the Book of Lists. It’s a great resource when you need to know “who’s doing what” — especially since things seem to change at such a hectic pace these days. As you know, health care is changing. With BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and BlueChoice HealthPlan it is changing for the better in South Carolina. We’re collaborating with physicians and hospitals across the state to provide a path toward healthy living for all South Carolinians. When you’re making your list of possible health insurance plans and providers, we hope you’ll visit aHealthySC.tv to learn more about what we’re doing. Because when it comes to something as important as your health care, it matters how you’re treated.
