Introducing Oakland County’s Elite 40 Under 40 Class of 2019

Members of the newly selected Elite 40 under 40 Class of 2019 came together for the first time at a private reception prior to the 2019 State of the County address on February 7th, 2019 at United Shore in Pontiac. The Elite 40 were honored guests of Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, who recognized them and their achievements in his speech.

“I’m excited about this outstanding class of talented and passionate leaders who are committed to improving their professions and their communities every day,” Patterson said. “These young leaders are wonderful ambassadors for Oakland County.”

During the Elite 40 reception, the class had the opportunity to network and mingle with Patterson, county officials, and each other. The room was filled with excitement as members shared their stories and successes. This year’s class of 40 was selected from about 250 applications. 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.
