     Blue Ash is an economic powerhouse located in the epicenter of a vibrant metropolitan area. Our small-city population of 12,000 swells to 50,000 each weekday as an influx of mostly white-collar professionals commute to Blue Ash to work for leading global companies and innovative small businesses. This highly skilled workforce and the 2,000+ companies they serve have made Blue Ash the region's second-largest office market, an economic force that trails only downtown Cincinnati.

    The 2013 Blue Ash Business Awards are presented by:
