Current Young Professionals
Future 15 & Young Professional Awards
Current Young Professionals (CYP) created the young professional awards in 2007 as a way to honor those who advance its mission by profiling best practices that could be adopted by other local individuals and organizations. Additionally, CYP sought to recognize local young professionals in Greater Green Bay who are achieving noteworthy accomplishments and contributing to the overall quality of life.
Future 15 annually profiles 15 young professionals and awards a Young Professional of the Year, Young Entrepreneur of the Year, and Next Generation Best Place to Work. These honorees are currently influencing the growth, prosperity, and quality of life in Greater Green Bay and demonstrate the ability to positively impact the area in the future through professional accomplishments and community involvement.
Young Professional of the Year
Young Professional of the Year is selected from the pool of Future 15 recipients. This honor is presented to an individual with a demonstrated commitment to Greater Green Bay through civic and business involvement, especially during the page year. The individual will possess values consistent with those of CYP, including an unwavering responsibility to the community through involvement with local organizations that elevate the overall quality of life in Greater Green Bay and our ability to engage and retain young talent.
