Some of the best and brightest young professionals who live or work in Oakland County came together last week to receive their Oakland Together 40 Under 40 Program awards. These individuals exemplify Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter’s vision for a community working together to leverage its strengths, address its challenges, and find value in working with regional partners.

The remarkable professionals in the 2022 class range from an appellate defender to elected officials, to business owners and entrepreneurs, disability rights advocates, to pioneers in the fields of construction, the arts, and recreation. There are teachers, lawyers and non-profit leaders, medical professionals and innovators.

“This diverse group of exceptional individuals are leaders and entrepreneurs, activists and teachers. But overall, they are all passionate about their communities, successful in their careers and bound for great things in the future. They embody the Oakland Together message that blends talent, skill and excellence with a commitment to public service.”

Executive Coulter revealed his roadmap for Oakland County’s future during his State of the County speech in March. The five-year strategic plan commits Oakland County to “All ways, moving forward,” by making a real and measurable impact in three primary areas: a strong economy, healthy and safe communities, and opportunities for residents to live their best lives.

The Oakland Together 40 Under 40 Class of 2022 can help the county steer a steady course with their input, suggestions, and expertise as we embark on transformational change in Oakland County.

Approximately 125 candidates, born after Dec. 31, 1981, applied to join the class. A panel of independent judges made the selections. Below is a complete list of the members of the 40 Under 40 Class of 2022.
