Kris Ruby Chosen by The Business Council of Westchester as one of the “40 Under 40″ Rising Stars for 2010
Business Council Announces Class of 2010 Rising Stars
The Business Community will Pay Tribute to 40 Young Professionals in 27 Industries on June 10
WHITE PLAINS, NY (May 5, 2010) The Business Council of Westchester – the county’s largest business membership organization – will present 40 young professionals under the age of 40 with Rising Star awards during a ceremony at MasterCard Worldwide, Purchase, NY on Thursday, June 10.
Modeled after the national business recognition program “Forty Under Forty,” The Business Council annually honors the extraordinary accomplishments of Westchester’s young business leaders who are making their mark in their chosen profession. The Rising Stars, ranging in age from 22 to 39, represent individuals from diverse industries including financial services, publishing, real estate, education, healthcare, advertising, information technology, retail, not for profit, and more. (Please see the attached document for a full list of winners in alphabetical order).
“The Rising Stars award recognizes individuals who surpass expectations, raise the bar and set new standards for success,” said Dr. Marsha Gordon, president and CEO of The Business Council of Westchester. “These young leaders represent the vision and future of Westchester County and its business community and we look forward to paying tribute to them on June 10th.”
Anyone between the ages of 21 and 40 who works in Westchester was eligible for consideration as a Rising Star. The two-part nomination process asked the nominator to describe the nominees’ professional/ entrepreneurial and/or personal accomplishments and leadership qualities, while nominees were asked about lessons learned, strengths, and long term goals. A ten-person Steering committee, chaired by James Giangrande (Senior Vice President, Opus Advisory Group and 2005 “Rising Star”) selected the “Forty under Forty” Rising Stars based on professional accomplishments, demonstrated leadership qualities and professional and/or business affiliations.
In 2008, A Rising Stars Alumni group, consisting of 15 former Rising Stars from diverse industries, evolved from the highly successful program. The Alumni group serves as a forum for members to discuss their own professional development, relate news, and develop programs throughout the year.
Established in 2004, “Rising Stars” is presented by MasterCard Worldwide and sponsored by The Westchester County Business Journal. Supporters include Berkeley College, Entergy, EZKR Accounting and Consulting LLP and TD Bank.
The “Rising Stars” awards ceremony on June 10, 2010, 5:30- 8:00 p.m. will take place in the lobby at MasterCard Worldwide, 2000 Purchase Street, Purchase, NY. Tickets are $50 per person. For registration and/or additional information, visit www.westchesterny.org or contact Pat Nicolais at the Business Council: (914) 948-2110 or email@example.com.
