Top guns recognized

Penticton's top business professionals, entrepreneurs and community leaders have been recognized in the city's latest media campaign, Top 40 Under 40, presented by Prospera Credit Union in partnership with JCI Penticton and the Penticton and Wine Country Chamber of Commerce.

Recipients of the Top 40 excel in their respective industries, give back to the community and are considered to be today's leaders.

The campaign kicked off in September when local entrepreneur and new tourism society chair Max Picton was recognized for his work in the community.

Since then, dozens of community leaders have had their stories told.

"The response from the recipients has been incredible," said chamber manager John Devitt, as the campaign reaches its fourth quarter. "Everyone we have spoken to felt honoured to be a part of the campaign and all have seen increases in their businesses.

The positive impact the campaign has created throughout the community is great, people in Penticton are doing great things and should be recognized."

JCI Penticton President Monica Horning stressed the campaign has been successful because of support from sponsors and the response from the community.

Now, with 11 weeks left of the campaign, the planning committee is encouraging the community to get their nominations in.

The nominations can be emailed to [email protected]
