Albany Area Chamber announces ‘Albany Under 40’ finalists

Albany, Ga.– The Albany Area Chamber of Commerce today announced the finalists of the 2018 Albany Under 40 awards, a program launched earlier this year that honors and celebrates the Albany Area’s emerging leaders and professionals in a variety of business sectors, each representing a component of the area’s diversified talentpool and economy.

“The Albany Area is home to young leaders who are making their mark through excellence in their professions, through their innovation and through their commitment to building a stronger region,” said Barbara Rivera Holmes, president and CEO of the Albany Area Chamber. “We’re honored to recognize these diverse, outstanding professionals and proud they’ve chosen to live, work and invest in the Albany Area.”

Finalists were considered from among the nearly 300 nominations that were received for Albany Under 40.

Finalists will be recognized at the Albany Under 40 Awards Reception on August 16 at the Albany Museum of Art, during which category winners will be announced. One overall Albany Under 40 award winner, selected from among the category winners, will be announced at the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce’s 109thannual dinner on January 24, 2019.
