Only a Few Hours Remain for 40 Under Forty Nominations
SPRINGFIELD — Time is running out to nominate your favorite rising star in the Western Mass. business community. Nominations for BusinessWest’s 40 Under Forty will be accepted through 5 p.m. today, at which time they will be forwarded to five independent judges, who will choose the class of 2015. The winners will be profiled in the April 20 issue and celebrated at a June 18 gala at the Log Cabin Banquet and Meeting House.
Since its inception in 2007, said BusinessWest editor George O’Brien, “40 Under Forty has become a brand, as well as a goal for many young people in the business community, nonprofit sector, and public-service realm. It’s become a benchmark, if you will, a symbol of excellence that, above all, identifies someone as a leader.”
The nomination form, available at businesswest.com, requests basic information and can be supported with other material, such as a résumé, testimonials, and even press clippings highlighting an individual’s achievements in their profession or service to their community.
