The North Bay Business Journal recently announced its 2016 Forty under 40 winners, and we’re thrilled that Jordan Ranch Manager Brent Young made the list.

Selected by the newspaper’s editorial staff from more than 125 nominations, winners were chosen based on their leadership within their companies, as well as their participation within the community. View the full list of winners on the NBBJ website.

An awards ceremony was held in late April at the DoubleTree Hotel in Rohnert Park to honor Brent and other 39 honorees. After hors d’oeuvres paired with wines from award winners including Jordan, St. Francis, Gary Farrell, Chateau St. Jean, Long Meadow Ranch and Christopher Creek, winners were presented with their awards. Brent’s family (including his daughter, Lucy), as well as Winemaker Rob Davis, turned out to congratulate Brent on his well-deserved award.
