Rachel Fawcett, ED, named to ‘Foremost Under 40’

Congratulations to our Executive Director, Rachel Fawcett, for being nominated and selected as one of PA Business Central’s Foremost Under 40.

This highly-anticipated list is one that acknowledges young professionals under the age of 40 who are on the move and on the “watch list” – the movers and the shakers who are going to shape the destiny of our regional B2B markets in the years ahead.

This annual list is a reminder that despite the many economic challenges that face businesses and the young people who run them, the generation on the rise is more than capable of meeting those challenges.

This year, 36 finalists were selected from the largest pool of nominations ever collected in the history of “Foremost Under 40.” This year’s winners include a variety of professions, including bankers, accountants, CEOs, executive directors, real estate agents, self-employed business owners and entrepreneurs.
