Each year Vermont Business Magazine identifies and honors a group of Vermont’s most accomplished young leaders as Rising Stars. The list is comprised of 40 individuals under the age of 40. Award recipients are selected by a panel of judges for their commitment to business growth, professional excellence and involvement in their communities.
Two South Burlington residents were named as 2013 Rising Stars. Owen Brady, Key Accounts Representative at Vermont Gas, and Beth Parent, Account Supervisor at PMG PR will be honored at a dinner celebrating the young leaders November 7 at the DoubleTree Hotel in South Burlington.
Employees at two South Burlington businesses were also named. Rex Accavallo, manager at Pro-Tech Security & Fire, and Robynn Beams, a Video Journalist at WCAX are among the awardees.
“We are thrilled by the response to this initiative to recognize these up-and-coming leaders,” said VBM Publisher John Boutin. “We received 150 outstanding nominations and the judges had a difficult time picking the top 40. These young professionals have chosen to make Vermont home,” Boutin said.
