32. G. Gilmer III and Charlotte Minor 

Chairman of the Board of Owens & Minor

In a city with few corporate wins to celebrate, medical-supply distributor Owens & Minor is about as rock-solid as they come, almost always besting its annual numbers — in 2009, the company earned $787 million in net profit off $8 billion in sales. Gil Minor flexes his muscles more and more in spheres of influence, most recently by appointment to Gov. Bob McDonnell's (No. 6) commission on higher education. Keep it coming, Gil.
