NASHUA – The Telegraph and Clark & Lavey Benefits Solutions are looking to recognize working individuals in the community who go above and beyond each and every day as part of the inaugural 40 under 40 awards.

Though these individuals may be known in their own work environment, The Telegraph and Clark & Lavey Benefits Solutions would like to let the community know what these special individuals are doing.

“As a business owner, the most important asset you have is your people,” said Paul Clark, president and CEO of Clark & Lavey Benefits Solutions. “This will give positive encouragement.”

“Our 40 under 40 is a great way to highlight those who are stars and leaders now,” said Heather Goodwin Henline, publisher and general manager of The Telegraph. “They are the anchor in an organization, they’re contributing members to driving change and driving business.”

Both Clark and Henline recognized the importance of people working locally.

“A lot of the under 40 crowd are told to get a good job they have to go to Boston,” Clark said. “That’s not the case. There are a lot of hidden gems, especially tech gems right here in this area.”

He said people can have a good life and a good well-being locally.

“You can be right here and if you want to go to the city, it’s 45 minutes away. If you want to go to the seacoast, it’s 45 minute away,” Clark said.

“People’s value are placed on being in the moment, on whole life balance,” Goodwin Henline said. “Our community offers so much of that. We have a wealth of opportunities for individuals of all ages. We really want people who live and work in Greater Nashua to get recognized.”

Those who are recognized, Clark noted, are the people, “who are the future of a company and our country.”

“I find that a lot of these individuals are basically going to become the next mover and shakers,” said Lynda Vallatini, The Telegraph’s advertising director. “Older people are going to retire, and these people are coming up behind them and taking over the reigns of companies and nonprofits.”

Nominees must be 39 years of age or younger as of May 1, 2019, and must be aware of their nomination. They also must live or work in the Telegraph’s coverage area of Greater Nashua. Nominations, which can be made on The Telegraph’s website, will be open from May 1-30.

Winners will be selected by a panel of judges and will be recognized at a banquet on July 18 at Rivier University.
