40 Under 40 | 2020
About: “They come from across the South Sound: from Montesano to Orting, Olympia to Poulsbo. They were born from the early 1980s to the mid-to-late 1990s, and work everywhere from Aberdeen to Federal Way as bankers, builders, and lawyers. Most have at least one pet, and one used to clean parking lots at a strip mall in Steilacoom. Meet South Sound Business’ 40 Under 40 Class of 2020.“

“Steve Lynch doesn’t believe in “days off.” He works tirelessly to identify and develop avenues to enrich the lives of others, especially the veteran community, of which he is proudly a part. He has made a name for himself as a burgeoning LinkedIn influencer, developing curriculum for transitioning military veterans seeking jobs. Even when he’s not “working,” he’s working. The Yelm resident constantly researches opportunities for learning and professional development. He’s even thinking about writing a book and starting a podcast to provide yet another platform through which he can reach veterans and military families,” by Zoe Branch, Carlisle Huntington, Joanna Kresge, Melissa McCarthy, and John Stearns.
