2 New Brunswick CPAs Take Home Top 20 Under 40 Award

Two New Brunswick CPAs, Mylène Lapierre of CPA NB and Steve Lund of Deloitte, each earned a coveted spot on the Top 20 Under 40 list at an event organized by The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Moncton and the Hub City Young Professionals Network.

The event

Twenty individuals under the age of 40 have been recognized by the first Greater Moncton’s Top 20 Under 40. The event organized by the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Moncton and the Hub City Young Professionals Network highlighted 20 individuals who are all making a difference in the community.

The first edition of this event was held on Wednesday, May 22 at the Dieppe Arts and Culture Centre.

Chamber of Commerce CEO, John Wishart, mentioned that all prizewinners are successful in their sector, they already have an accomplished career at a young age, but what separates them from all the finalists is their commitment to make their community a better place to live.

On our first Top 20 Under 40 list there are young business leaders, entrepreneurs who have slayed the dragons on Dragon’s Den, marketers who are creating award-winning campaigns, and app developers who are taking the labour recruitment world by storm”, said Wishart.

The nomination process was open online until March 29 and the Chamber of Commerce and Hub City Young Professionals received 80 nominations. The Greater Moncton’s Top 20 Under 40 Advisory Board reviewed all candidates and selected the name of the 40 finalists, and the twenty winners that we are revealing today.

Patrick Richard, founder of the Hub City Young Professionals Network, explained that their organization was created to promote business and social networking opportunities for all of Greater Moncton's young professionals, young business owners and young leaders.

To be able to highlight twenty young leaders and change-makers of our community is quite an accomplishment for a young network like ours. With the help of the Chamber we were able to pull it off and organize this new event in Greater Moncton, and we hope we will continue making history for a long time”, said Richard.
