Everyone wants to know which local companies are on the cusp of something big. Thats why each January, Small Business News tells you Who to Watch in the coming year.
The organizations weve selected this year arent the only ones to keep your eye on in 1999. At least one large, Columbus-based employer that didnt make the list appears destined for an interesting year.
That employer is the State of Ohio. Not only will our state government get a new administration, but its likely to face one of the biggest challenges of the centuryconverting its computer systems seamlessly into the year 2000. The timeline is shortened, too, as the state rolls into fiscal 2000 on July 1 of this year.
So keep your fingers crossed and your eyes wide open. Its apt to be an interesting year all around Central Ohio.
