We put together every issue of the Nilson Report with the intent of helping
our subscribers do business better. One way we do this is by providing the
email addresses of executives mentioned in feature articles as well as in our
First Look and Management Changes sections. In the first eight issues of
2021, we published the names and email addresses of nearly 400 executives
around the world.
