“We have many talented emerging leaders in our region and these awards help draw attention to the great work being done,” says Murray Smith, partner with KPMG’s office in Vernon. “At KPMG, our mantra is “LetsDoThis.” This expression encapsulates exactly what this program is all about- working together as a community to accelerate and support worthy leaders, and by doing so, inspire others to be the best they can be.”
Starting February 1 recipients will be announced over the course of four weeks and will be featured on the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce website. The recipients will also be honoured at a special recognition event on March 6,2019.
“Recognizing some of the talented young professionals in the region has multiple benefits,” says Diana Wilson, GVCC president. “It’s important for our community to know the caliber of talent we have and what they are doing to sustain and grow our region. It can also encourage investment and attract other talented professionals to our community. ”
If you know someone who is excelling in their career, passionate about the community, helping to raise the profile of the North Okanagan, and will be under the age of 40 as of January 31, 2019, then they are a perfect candidate for the 2018 Top 20 Under 40.
