WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – The Business Council of Westchester, the county’s premier business advocacy and membership organization, is seeking nominations for Westchester’s “Forty Under Forty Rising Stars.”
Modeled after the national business recognition program “Forty Under Forty,” The Business Council annually honors the extraordinary accomplishments of 40 of Westchester’s young business leaders who are making their mark in their chosen profession. The rising stars, ranging in age from 22 to 39, represent diverse industries including financial services, construction, real estate, education, health care, biotech, information technology, retail, not-for-profit and more. The awards ceremony will be held in June.
“Rising Stars continues to grow and remains a vital program as we look to recognize the future leaders in Westchester County,” said Marsha Gordon, president and CEO of The Business Council of Westchester. “We look forward to paying tribute to the next class of Rising Stars.” Anyone over 21 who works in Westchester and is under 40 years old as of June 30, 2015, is eligible for consideration as a Rising Star.
The two-part process includes a description by the nominator of the nominee’s professional/entrepreneurial and/or personal accomplishments and leadership qualities. Nominees are asked about lessons learned, strengths and long-term goals. A 10-person Steering Committee, chaired by Maria Bronzi of Altium Wealth Management, select the “Forty under Forty Rising Stars” based on professional accomplishments, demonstrated leadership qualities and professional and/or business affiliations.
