Produced by the editors of D CEO magazine, the Dallas 500 is a special edition that celebrates the most influential business leaders in North Texas. Qualifying individuals must be based in the Dallas-Fort Worth region.

If you’d like to recommend an executive or business category for consideration next year or provide other feedback on the special edition, please complete this form. The deadline to submit for the 2021 edition is June 30, 2020.

The Dallas 500 is not an awards program or a vote-based list. All decisions are made by the editors; the number of recommendations an individual receives is not a consideration factor.

  • The Dallas 500 is broken down into more than 60 industry categories (e.g., retail, banking, energy-oil and gas, technology and telecom, etc.). If there’s an additional business category you’d like us to consider for next year, please let us know.
