For Third Consecutive Year, Billy Wilkins Named to Greenville’s “Most Influential” List

January 9, 2012

GREENVILLE, SC – January 9, 2012 – The January 2012 edition of Greenville Business magazine names Nexsen Pruet attorney Billy Wilkins to its list of 50 Most Influential people in Greenville.  

Wilkins, who is former Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, has been named to the list each year since returning to private practice in the Upstate.
In introducing the honorees, the magazine writes: “…meet the people we believe made the most impact on Greenville during the past year in the business, government, education and nonprofit categories.
Since influence is a rather subjective concept, you’ll notice we’ve included no numbered rankings. We consider the contributions of each of these people to be important in shaping Greenville’s business and community landscape over the past twelve months.”
Wilkins earned his law degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law and his bachelor’s degree from Davidson College.
