Lehigh Valley Business named 40 young executives from the Greater Lehigh Valley as the 2015 Forty Under 40 honorees today.
Cited for their contributions to their company, industry and community, they will be recognized at the third annual Forty Under 40 awards ceremony Wednesday, June 10, at Hotel Bethlehem in Bethlehem.
Each of the honorees was selected for his or her commitment to business growth, professional excellence and the community. An independent panel of judges reviewed the nominees and gave them scores based on their achievements.
“The honorees come from a diverse group of industries from all over the Greater Lehigh Valley,” said publisher Mike O’Rourke of Lehigh Valley Business, which created the initiative to honor the region’s young executives who are rising to the top of their respective industries. “Each of the honorees has made a significant impact on their business and community.”
