Suzy Witherell Announced as NBBJ 2020 Forty Under 40 Winner
On April 10, 2020 the North Bay Business Journal made its announcement of the current year’s honorees of their annual Forty Under 40 awards. Mengali Accountancy’s very own Suzy Witherell was amongst this year’s group of winners selected from a pool of nearly 200 nominees. The Journal editorial staff selected the winners based on the leadership in companies and organizations across the North Bay.
Suzy joined the Mengali Accountancy team back in 2008 and the firm has commented on her recent honor, “We are so grateful that [Suzy] has chosen our firm to develop her career within. Suzy has advanced herself into an absolute wiz in all things tech – last year, deservingly, being promoted to Director of IT Services.” The award acknowledges her years of technical knowledge and skillset that were truly tested during times like this pandemic and through the region’s recent fires.
While the group of 2020 winners were announced in the middle of a global pandemic, Publisher Brad Bollinger had the following sentiment to share, “Winners of these awards reflect an inspiring and substantial pool of young talent across the North Bay. It is our privilege to honor them and shine a light on them for the whole community to see.”
In years past, the North Bay Business Journal typically hosted a large awards celebration to honor the Forty Under 40 winners. With the unique circumstances of the 2020 pandemic well under way, the publisher set up a creative way to celebrate this year’s winners in the form of a virtual public celebration.
The free, public celebration took place on May 21, 2020 and Publisher Brad Bollinger encouraged online attendance stating, “…It is the only place you will hear directly from the winners about how they are coping personally and professionally with the impacts of the pandemic.”
