Chamber Welcome

It’s my pleasure to welcome you to the Greater Irvine Chamber’s fifth annual 40 Under 40 event, recognizing some of Orange County’s brightest young professionals who are positively impacting and moving our community forward.

The Chamber’s mission is to advance the economic vitality of greater Irvine. To that end, it is an honor to congratulate such a dynamic group of individuals and to recognize them individually for their impressive accomplishments that are contributing to the economic and social health of the county.

The professionals we celebrate today help drive innovation and position Orange County as a leading West Coast economic powerhouse that stands up to any other urban center in the world. These individuals serve as a reminder of the rich human capital we have in Orange County and as examples for others who strive to excel in their profession. They bring new ideas, fresh perspectives, and leading-edge skills, whether it’s to their enterprise, large corporation, small business, educational institution, nonprofit, or civic organization. This generation of talent brings great potential to the future of Orange County.

Thank you for joining us as we celebrate this year’s honorees, as well as all the finalists, and the promise they bring for a bright future for Orange County.

Presenting Sponsor Message

I keep telling folks how lucky I am to participate in the Greater Irvine Chamber's 40 Under 40 Awards again! It's because, at this event, we witness incredible individuals who are making a difference in our community. Their stories remind us of the power we have to shape the world around us.

I still remember the excitement I felt five years ago when I co-emceed the awards for the first time. It was powerful, celebrating their extraordinary stories, and since, Antis Roofing & Waterproofing has proudly returned as the Presenting Sponsor each year. Our continued support is a testament to the energy and inspiration we feel when among these remarkable individuals.

Tonight, we will "feel our aliveness," at the 2023 40 Under 40. It will be an evening filled with joy, inspiration, and recognition of our community's outstanding young professionals.

..And by the way, I'm thrilled to share this stage with my co-emcee, Jessica Welch. Together, we'll match our energies with these stories and you’ll "feel it” as we celebrate the exceptional accomplishments of our 40 Under 40 award winners.

Let’s celebrate!
