‘Top 10 of the Next Gen’ business leaders to be honored

Ten Fredericksburg-area business leaders under the age of 40 will be honored at a Dec. 1 event in Spotsylvania County. The local Next Generation of Business Leaders group came up with the idea, which is patterned after similar programs in other cities. The concept frequently involves honoring 40 business leaders under the age of 40, but a decision was made locally that it would be more sustainable for the long run if 10 people a year were honored. That also led to the catchy name “Top 10 of the Next Gen.”

A committee of NGBL board members and others in the business community are coming up with the list of 10 recipients this year, said Whitney Watts, who is spearheading the effort through her work at the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce and as a NGBL board member. In future years they will likely accept nominations for the award. The award winners will be announced at a NGBL holiday party at Stevenson Ridge.
