Every year, the Worcester Business Journal (WBJ) identifies 40 individuals under the age of 40 in recognition of their outstanding leadership and dedication, not only in their careers, but also within the community. WBJ has been honoring young professionals in this manner since the year 2000 and every year since they’ve found amazing groups of inspirational individuals. inConcert is proud to say that one of this year’s 40 Under 40 honorees was our very own, Matt Ward!
Matt was recognized as being a successful small business owner who’s continually showing community involvement. He donates his time and skill set to Habitat For Humanity of North Central Massachusetts by assisting with the agency’s websites as well as participating on its development committee. He’s an ambassador for the Wachusett Chamber of Commerce and he contributes to the Gardner VNA as a member of its fund development committee. On top of all that, he coaches for the Twin City Blue Raiders semi-pro football team of the Eastern Football League.
The majority of the inConcert staff was able to join Matt and his fellow 40 Under 40 award recipients at Mechanics Hall in Worcester last night for an enjoyable evening of recognition and networking. The event was hosted by Worcester Business Journal’s CEO/Publisher, Peter Stanton, who, along with Senior Staff Writer, Brandon Butler, gave enthusiastic (and entertaining) introductions to the 40 honorees. The ceremony was followed by delicious hors d’oeuvres and time to meet and greet the honorees, their coworkers, friends and family.
Congratulations Matt, we are very proud of you!
