San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 22, 2007
Callan Capital, a La Jolla-based wealth management firm, announced that CEO and co-founder, Trevor Callan, received San Diego Metropolitan's 40 Under Forty 2007 Award at the 8th Annual award luncheon held on Tuesday, September 11, at the San Diego Convention Center. A portion of the proceeds from the event benefited the YWCA and its important programs, including Becky's House for battered women and their children.
San Diego Metropolitan's 40 Under Forty Award recognizes 40 of the brightest young professionals, executives, entrepreneurs, and civic leaders in San Diego County who are under 40 years old for their career triumphs and community contributions.
"San Diego is fortunate to have successful young business leaders like Trevor," said Gary Shaw, publisher of San Diego Metropolitan. "His ability to balance a successful wealth management firm with the drive to improve the quality of San Diego's environment is admirable."
During the Award Ceremony, Callan was noted for founding Callan Capital and growing assets under management to over $150 million in just seven months; serving as a former director and treasurer of San Diego Social Venture Partners (SDSVP), a 6-year-old group of philanthropic investors; and co-founding SDSVP's environmental accelerator fund, which has raised more than half of its $1 million goal for research and environmental programs.
"I am very excited and honored to be recognized with such an incredibly talented and accomplished group," said Callan. "It is encouraging to see San Diego has so many professionals dedicated to the commercial and community well-being of the region."
Since 2000, San Diego Metropolitan Magazine has selected 40 San Diegans, all under the age of 40, for their extreme dedication and commitment to their jobs and communities.
"This is not a vanity awards program. Rather, Metropolitan readers nominate the candidates by filling out detailed forms about the candidates' professional and civic contributions and educational background," added Shaw. "A panel of distinguished judges then studies the nomination forms over a period of weeks and convene to make final selections. The first 30 or so are usually the easiest, but trimming the list to the top 40 gets excruciating because even the runners-up are so highly accomplished. Trevor Callan made the judges' job easier."
