The Dayton Business Journal has named University of Dayton President Daniel J. Curran and two alumni — Jeff Hoagland and Jon Husted — among the top 10 most influential people of 2011 in Dayton.

"This group of people, through their actions this year, have shaped the Miami Valley and been involved with efforts that should continue to reshape the region in the coming years," the Dayton Business Journal reported Oct. 19.

The full list includes: Paul Barbas, DPL Inc.; Christopher Che, Hooven-Dayton Corp.; Daniel J. Curran, University of Dayton; Deborah Feldman, Montgomery County; Randy Gunlock, RG Properties; Jeff Hoagland, Dayton Development Coalition; Jon Husted, Ohio Secretary of State; The Mathile Family; Tim Riordan, City of Dayton; and Joe Sciabica, Air Force Research Laboratory.

Those on the list will be recognized in a special report in the Dec. 23 issue of the Dayton Business Journal.

In 2010, Curran received the Regional Leadership Award from the Dayton Business Journal, which also named him as being among one of the decade’s 10 most influential people in Dayton. In 2006, the Dayton Development Coalition named him the Dayton region's most outstanding volunteer citizen.
