The Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce is teaming up with KPMG LLP to bring the 2nd Annual KPMG Top Twenty Under 40 to the North Okanagan.  The initiative is meant to recognize and celebrate some of the young professionals who are making their mark through business success and community involvement. These individuals must either be from the North Okanagan and making their mark on the world stage or from somewhere else and making a big impact here.  The program will also feature something new this year as it will recognize up to five “Rising Stars”, those who are under the age of 30 and have already made a big impact in business.

“The region is fortunate to have many young professionals and entrepreneurs who are rapidly becoming our next leaders and it’s important for us as a community to recognize and foster their development,” says David Adams, managing partner with KPMG’s office in Vernon. “KPMG is proud to sponsor this program and to recognize the many individuals who are making a positive impact in the Greater Vernon area.”

If you know of someone who is excelling in their career, passionate about the community, helping to raise the profile of the region, and will be under the age of 40 as of December 31, 2016 then they are a perfect candidate for the KPMG Top Twenty Under 40.  Nominees can be entrepreneurs, executives, managers, or professionals in public, private, or not-for-profit sectors. Nomination Deadline: Friday September 2, 2016.

“Recognizing some of the talented young professionals in the region has multiple benefits,” says Tracy Cobb-Reeves, 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. On behalf of the GVCC, I’d like to thank KPMG and our other corporate sponsors for helping to make this initiative possible.”
