The Puget Sound Business Journal just announced its list of the top 40 businesspeople under 40 in the Puget Sound area (Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue and more) and our own Hilary Bricken is on this most prestigious of lists. Considering she just turned 30, we believe she is one of the youngest (perhaps even the youngest) on the list). We will be waiting for the PSBJ’s special issue explaining its choices, but at this point we are betting Hilary made it because of her influence on the legal side of cannabis businesses in Washington State.
The PSBJ explained this award last year as follows:
Puget Sound Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 program celebrates its 17th year as the region’s premier award program that spotlights the top business leaders under the age of 40 who excel in their industry and show dynamic leadership.
Each year the Puget Sound Business Journal produces a special 40 Under Forty Publication that profiles the 40 individuals honored in that particular year. We then post expanded stories, more photographs and fun personal facts told in their own words about each of the honorees on the web. And we throw a huge 40 Under Forty Awards Bash each September to publicly celebrate their successes. More event information will be available soon
We could not be more proud.
