The 2010 Top 25 Under 35 Movers & Shakers
Northeast Ohio has something to brag about — a group of young, enterprising, resourceful professionals who are emerging as our region’s leaders for today and tomorrow. Since 2005, the Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club has honored this elite group with its Top 25 Under 35 Movers & Shakers Awards.
The Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club’s mission is to showcase those making a professional and personal impact on Northeast Ohio. These awards align with those guidelines. Candidates are either nominated by their peers or self-nominated. An independent committee judges them on their career achievements, as well as social, philanthropic and community involvement.
Some were born here, others moved here. Some work at nonprofits, others for-profits. All share a similar resolve: to make Northeast Ohio a better place to live, to raise a family and to build their futures.
This year’s Top 25 Under 35 talked with us about their hopes, dreams, families and friends, their careers and their accomplishments. Although they were too modest to admit why they have been selected, after speaking with them, we learned the obvious. They are a light in our future.
