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, this is our tenth year” said VBM Publisher John Boutin. “We received over 240 outstanding nominations this year. 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,” Boutin said.

Vermont Business Magazine will honor Vermont's most accomplished young leaders at the Rising Stars dinner on November 7th. The dinner will be held at the Delta Hotel in South Burlington. The honorees will also be featured in the November issue of Vermont Business Magazine.
