Outstanding young leaders chosen for contributions to the Vermont economy and their community

Vermont Business Magazine is proud to announce the winners of its Rising Stars recognition award. The list is comprised of 40 winners under the age of 40. Award recipients were selected by a panel of judges for their commitment to business growth, professional excellence, and involvement in their communities.

“We are thrilled by the response to this initiative to recognize these up-and-coming leaders, especially during this pandemic. This is our twelfth year” said VBM Publisher John Boutin. “We received over 130 outstanding nominations this year. The total number of honorees over the past 12 years totals 481.”

“The five judges had a difficult time picking the top 40. These young professionals have chosen to make Vermont home. For these young professionals, it’s not just about business. It’s about them making a difference in their communities. These honorees over the years have stepped up as leaders, not only at their place of employment but also in their communities,” Boutin said.

Vermont Business Magazine will honor Vermont's most accomplished young leaders at the Rising Stars special event on November 4th. Due to increases in COVID cases over the last month or so, we will decide soon on how the event will take place.

The honorees will also be featured in the November issue of Vermont Business Magazine.

FAST FACTS: Of the 40 honorees, there are 24 women and 16 men. There are 15 from Chittenden County, 7 from Windham County, 6 from Washington County, 4 from Rutland County, 3 from Addison County, 2 from Bennington County, 1 from Caledonia County, 1 from Orange County and 1 from Orleans County.

The average age of the honorees is 33 years old. The oldest is 39 and the youngest is 24 years old.
