Meet the Elite 40 Under 40 Class of 2017


The newly selected Elite 40 Under 40 Class of 2017 came together for the first time at a special reception at the 2017 State of the County on February 8th, 2017. The class was then recognized in Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson’s Address.

Nominations were reviewed by a panel of judges, looking for the top young professionals and thought leaders who live or work in Oakland County. The 40 honorees have achieved excellence in their field and contributed to the quality of life in their communities.
