partner Jay Mellon has been honored by Crain’s Cleveland as a ’40 Under 40’ honoree. Recently, over 500 celebrants gathered to salute the twentieth class of award winners.
Each November since 1991, Crain’s has picked 40 outstanding young professionals under the age of 40 to honor.
This year's group of individuals has distinguished themselves as community leaders and are playing a critical part in the development of business in Northeast Ohio. A vision for growing their organizations as well as the region is the common thread that ties this diverse group together, according to Crain's.
“I am always amazed at the talent represented at events like these. It’s humbling to be included among those named to the Class of 2011. I admire them for their achievements and look forward to seeing what accomplishments Crain’s can report about this group of alumni in twenty years," said Mellon.
