OBJ's 40 Under 40

Includes 10 Leadership Orlando Graduates

Orlando Business Journal last week identified its 2016 40 Under 40, saying As Central Florida grows, so too, does its population of bright, entrepreneurial and driven young professionals — and here, we introduce you to 40 of those young guns.

At the Central Florida Partnership, we are pleased that ten of these outstanding young professionals have participated in our 40+ year old Leadership Orlando program and send our best wishes, as well. They are highlighted in the listing below.

We join the Orlando Business Journal in congratulating the 2016 class of 40 Under 40. The awards recognize Central Florida’s top professionals under the age for 40 who have made significant achievements in their career.

Along with professional success, the honorees also have been heavily involved in the local community through charitable causes and missions that help make Orlando a world-class city.


Check out the full list of the class of 2016 honorees in the photo gallery.
