Louisville Business First has given developer Gill Holland its 2017 Excellence in Leadership award.

For years, Holland has worked to revitalize blighted and economically depressed neighborhoods of Louisville into thriving hotspots of restaurants, shops, and homes. The publication credits Holland for turning many of his ideas into a reality—and for the projects he continues to support that are transform the city.

Holland and more than a dozen other businesses and nonprofits were honored during Louisville Business First’s Business of the Year event earlier this month.
