The Savoy Top 100 is the definitive listing of African-American influencers and achievers impacting corporate America. Selection of the “Top 100 Blacks in Corporate America” begins by examining the landscape of spheres of influence impacting Savoy’s readership including: corporate sector influence, scholastic achievement, career growth, community outreach and recognition.

“Chris’ accomplishments are vital in developing the diverse, inclusive environment that makes our company so successful,” said Ken Lowe, chairman, CEO and president of SNI. “This recognition is well-deserved and rightly places Chris among the elite in American business.”

In addition to his duties as the head of human resources, Powell chairs the company’s Benefits Committee, serves on its Executive Diversity and Management Committees. He is vice chair of the Knoxville Area Urban League, 2012 Leadership Knoxville Program participant and the University of Tennessee Chancellor’s Associate Council.
