Achievers Driven by Ambition, Compassion

GenXYZ 2018 – Colorado's 25 most influential young professionals


Published:

Yes, they're young – and smart, driven and successful. Chosen from hundreds of nominations by a judging panel of editors, business leaders and former winners, ColoradoBiz magazine's 2018 Top 25 Young Professionals are standouts not only in their companies, but in their communities as well.

They include Alisha Brown, who has dedicated her career to the health and well-being of the residents in low-income neighborhoods in northeast Denver. And math teacher Phillip Hutcherson, owner of Colorado Springs-based SAGE Affordable Tutoring, who understands the struggles of low-income students firsthand and seeks them out to offer free services. And there’s something more:

Many have worked to make their companies more diverse and inclusive from the inside out. Alexandra Metzl, a shareholder at Denver law firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, created a task force at the firm to identify ways to enhance gender diversity at all levels and firm offices. At Rubin Brown, Strategic Client Development Manager Molly Osadjan-Rudolf has helped expand diversity through the Women’s Inclusion Steering Council and her office’s
vision committee.

Read on to find out more about this select group of up-and-coming young professionals and their limitless potential.
