Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Resourceful HR, LLC, today announced that its president, Jennifer Olsen, has been recognized by the Puget Sound Business Journal as a winner of its annual ‘40 Under 40’ award program. This prestigious award identifies influential Seattle-area business leaders under the age of 40 who demonstrate dynamic leadership and excel in their industry and in their community.
Now in its 14th year the Puget Sound Business Journal’s ‘40 Under 40’ award program has profiled 560 top business leaders, entrepreneurs, decision makers and executives. Out of 400 individuals who applied for the award in 2012, an expert panel of judges chose only 40 award-winners based on their leadership, vision, and career accomplishments. The ‘40 Under 40’ winners will be profiled in a special section of the newspaper and will be honored at an awards ceremony in September. The ‘40 Under 40’ alumni also become members of the NW Next Leaders Council, an exclusive networking group who provides mentorship to rising business stars.
“I am honored to join the 40 Under 40 alumni as they are all distinguished leaders who add to this region’s thriving business community,” said Jennifer Olsen, President of Resourceful HR. “While I am thrilled to be recognized for my accomplishments, I could not be successful without the help of my team at Resourceful HR and the volunteers and board members of AHOPE and the WBBA.”
“We are proud and excited to announce this year’s Puget Sound Business Journal 40 Under 40 honorees,” said Gordon Prouty, Puget Sound Business Journal Publisher. “This year’s class joins the 520 past winners who have been recognized for their outstanding achievements in both career and community. They represent a diverse group of industries and background and demonstrate the innovation, energy and commitment that has made our region great, and will continue to make our region great moving forward.”
