– From South Sound Business – “Class of 2018, 40 Under 40 Honorees”
“We asked, and you totally delivered.
“As we began culling through the stacks of reader-generated submissions for our annual 40 Under 40, we were amazed by the quality of the nominations. You opened our eyes to so many ambitious, goal-oriented, and passionate South Sound professionals that it was difficult to choose only 40.
“After much debate, we landed on what we felt was the best of the best. So we present to you: the 2018 class of 40 Under 40 honorees, who we feel will only get better with age.”
