Dear Ramneek Kapoor,

Who’s Who in the World 2012 (29th Edition) has just been published and I’d like to share with you some of the fascinating people whose biographies will appear in the book – alongside your own – for the very first time.

Each year our staff researches people from around the globe who merit inclusion in Who’s Who in the World. Beginning with the first edition of Who’s Who in America in 1899, which featured such luminaries as Thomas Edison and Mark Twain, Marquis Who’s Who publications have represented the most comprehensive sources available for information on human achievement.

Here are just a few of the latest leaders and innovators to be included in Who’s Who in the World:

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (née Kate Middleton), named one of The 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2011 by Time magazine.

Women’s rights activists Leymah Gbowee and Tawakkul Karman, co-recipients of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, along with longtime listee Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf.

Didier Faivre, recently appointed Director of the Galileo program and navigation-related activities for the European Space Agency.

Professional cyclist Cadel Evans, winner of the 2011 Tour de France.

Dilma Rousseff, inaugurated in 2011 as the first female President of Brazil.

Architect Eduardo Souto de Moura, known for such works as the Paula Rego Museum and recipient of the 2011 Pritzker Architecture Prize.

Activist artist Ai Weiwei, topped ArtReview magazine’s 2011 Power 100 and runner-up for Time’s 2011 Person of the Year.

Carolyn S. Miles, newly appointed President and CEO of Save the Children.

We are proud to have you as a member of the Marquis Who’s Who family and to welcome you into the 2012 Edition of Who’s Who in the World. On behalf of our entire team, congratulations and I wish you the best of luck for your continued success.
