The Alexandria Chamber of Commerce honored the city’s emerging business leaders at the 2018 40 Under 40 awards celebration July 19 at the United Way Worldwide Headquarters.

More than 350 people turned out for the event, which was sponsored by Beyer Subaru. U.S. Rep. Don Beyer (D-8) co-hosted the event with Alfred Street Baptist Church associate minister Michelle Millben, a 2017 40 Under 40 honoree, and Chamber CEO Joe Haggerty presented the awards with board member Stephanie Beyer Kirby.

Now in its third year, the 40 under 40 program recognizes top men and women under the age of 40 who are engaged in a variety of fields including business, technology, nonprofit management, civic life, public service, education and the arts. Eighteen women were among this year’s honorees with the youngest recipient 25 years old.
