The Young Professional of the Year Award is another award that has been revamped. In previous years, this award was titled the “Young Entrepreneur of the Year”, which had a narrower focus on young people building a product or business from scratch.
This award is given to an individual under the age of 40 who has tackled the challenges of entrepreneurship and/or has demonstrated professional growth and success in their respective field of work. This individual:
In 2018, Chloe Hamilton from Warm Embrace Elder Care took home the award. She, along with her mother and sister, established Warm Embrace Elder Care, which provides compassionate care to an aging population. By the age of 22, Chloe graduated with honors, owned a seasonal franchise, and started her own business. Warm Embrace Elder Care has grown from 3 to 34 caregivers, four full time administrative staff, and one part time receptionist in 2018! Chloe is a shining example of what can happen when passion meets motivation and was deserving of this award.
Good luck to all the incredible nominees below for the 2019 Business Excellence Awards!
