Kinky Boots Tony Award winner Billy Porter has landed a spot on Insider's 100 People Transforming Business, which "profiles 100 business leaders across 10 distinct sectors who are innovating, sparking trends, and tackling global challenges."

Porter also won a Grammy Award for his lead vocals on the Kinky Boots cast recording, making him just an Academy Award shy of achieving EGOT status.
