2019 marks five years of recognizing Lynchburg’s “Millennials on the Move.” Launched in partnership with Lynchburg Business Magazine and the Young Professionals of Central Virginia, a committee of the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance, Millennials on the Move recognizes the top rising talent in the Lynchburg region. Our goals with this annual list of top talent is to engage local employers, to celebrate the accomplishments of the next generation of Lynchburg leaders and to make the City of Lynchburg a welcoming place for young talent to call home.
Earlier this year, a panel of judges sat down to review over 125 nominations from the community and selected 25 individuals that showcase the region’s top talent at this point in time. All are under the age of 40 – meaning they have years ahead in their careers to make even more of an impact. Numerous industries are represented – from agriculture to finance and beyond.
This year’s Millennials on the Move were recognized for being: young, innovative, talented, and, most importantly, focused on bettering our community for the greater good of the region as a whole. Awards were presented on Thursday, August 1st at the Glass House in Downtown Lynchburg.
