Here's The 2020 40Under40
By Luke Haase | Sept. 1, 2020
Every September, the Traverse City Business News spotlights 40 local professionals under age 40 who excel professionally and in the community. This year marks the 14th anniversary of the annual 40Under40 list of influencers, and the fifth year Hagerty has been the signature sponsor.
The compendium recognizes individuals in Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Benzie and Kalkaska counties under the age of 40 whose professional and community efforts during this past year had the most impact on their community, the region and the economy.
The 2020 class is comprised of 21 women and 20 men (two brothers from the same company count as one). While there are many multi-year recipients, the class includes 20 new faces from a wide range of sectors.
A panel of judges reviewed the submissions and chose the 40 influencers out of 100-plus nominations from the community. The panel included K.K. Trucco, vice president of recruiting for Hagerty; Benjamin Marentette, Traverse City clerk and past 40Under40 recipient; Luke Haase, publisher of the TCBN, Northern Express and The Ticker; Lynda Wheatley, executive editor of Northern Express; and Gayle Neu, contributing editor of the TCBN.
In every other year, a reception has been held to celebrate the winners; unfortunately there's no event this year, though each winner will receive a bag with generous gifts from Hagerty and MAWBY.
The 2020 40Under40 winners are:
Nick and Chris Loud
John R. Lutchko
Christopher D. Mazzola
Leah Bagdon McCallum
Marc S. McKellar II
Aubrey Ann Parker
Lindsay J. Raymond
