Honors a career-bold YP who is a driver, pacesetter and pioneer in his or her industry. A Front Runner’s approach to leadership is one that draws strength from his or her core values, self-awareness and the ability to ignite the potential in others. Front Runners put in the long hours, take on new challenges and persevere when told it couldn’t be done. Their drive and passion for this work fuels their desire to leave an impactful legacy.
Front Runners are making a name for themselves through hard work, active engagement and great results. Not afraid to take calculated risks, they exercise strategic judgment in supporting the mission of their teams and their organizations. They may have demonstrated excellent leadership in early management roles, blown sales goals out of the water, or expanded business in a big way. Front Runners want to be experts in their fields and are obvious candidates for future leadership roles.
