On Wednesday, September 16th, 2015, Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson met with three members of the 2015 Elite 40 Under 40 class of 2015. The forum is designed to allow Elite 40 members a smaller, more intimate setting to connect with the County Executive and each other. The County Executive holds these forums in an effort to build friendships and connections among the Elite 40 and the county’s leadership. Attendees included Amanda Page of Page Law, Nirav Doshi, Managing Partner at Complete Data Products, and Shannon Lazovski of The Lazov Agency. Also in attendance was Irene Spanos, Director of Economic Development and Community Affairs; Kristie Zamora, Elite 40 Program Coordinator; and Bill Mullan, Media and Communications Officer.
Once the members were seated and comfortable, the forum buzzed with energy as the candidates introduced themselves. Each member spoke of their personal dedication to their companies, philosophy and products. Patterson was very excited to hear the group all came from humble beginnings and paved their own way to success. Through blogging, family businesses and learning from mistakes, every member had an interesting story of success to tell. Irene Spanos was also able to engage with the group in making connections with other Elite 40 Under 40 members.
