Winners were chosen by the Journal editorial staff from more than 125 nominations on the basis of their leadership in companies and organizations as well as their participation within the community across the North Bay.
“We were told when we started this award 10 years ago we would not find 40 outstanding professionals under the age of 40,” said Business Journal Publisher Brad Bollinger. “Well, they were correct we didn’t find 40. We have found 400. It has been our privilege since Day One to recognize these young professionals who will carry our North Bay communities forward successfully in the decades ahead.”
