Local Black Execs Featured In Savoy Magazine

Chicago is the nation's third largest city but one of the top producers of influential Blacks in Corporate America, according to information found in the Spring 2012 issue of Savoy.

American Express Chairman & CEO Kenneth I. Chenault covers the 11th anniversary issue--which profiles people of color in various executive positions at Fortune 500 companies across the country. 

One of the honorees, Don Thompson, made headlines this week by becoming the first African-American CEO of the McDonald's Corporation--which is based in the Chicago suburb of Oak Brook, Illinois. 

But Thompson is not the only person on Savoy's list who is making the Windy City proud.
