Each year, the Albany Business Review selects 40 innovative and dynamic business people, under the age of 40, from a range of industries throughout the region. The award is quite competitive: This year’s nominations numbered more than 400. The Review will recognize the recipients in a special edition and at a luncheon at the Albany Capital Center on May 11.
Saint Rose alumni are no stranger to the awards, having appeared in the honorees’ ranks year after year. Recognized for the 2018 awards are:
