We are excited to announce that Anna Hutson, founder and CEO of Avenue Agency, has been voted one of Portland Business Journal’s 2017 40 Under 40 award recipients!
Every year, the PBJ carefully selects 40 young executives in the Portland area who are going above and beyond in both their careers and communities. To qualify, recipients must be under 40 years of age and are judged based on leadership, community involvement, career and influence. The 40 under 40 nomination is a top honor awarded to young executives who are actively seeking to better their communities and their industries. Winners are featured in the Portland Business Journal 40 Under 40 special publication. This year, the 40 award recipients were chosen from a large pool of over 400 nominees!
Anna’s will to lead, commitment to community and results-driven mindset are what make her a true 40 Under 40 PBJ award winner. With a 10+ year career in the marketing industry under her belt, Anna delegates the majority of her time between growing Avenue and volunteering in the Portland community, serving on the Statewide Board of Directors for SMART (Start Making A Reader Today). Anna is also the Engage Conference Director on the Board of Directors for SEMpdx (Search Engine Marketing Professionals of Portland). Anna has spent her career driving growth and success through marketing and management, having worked in various positions of leadership at top Portland agencies.
On June 23rd, 2017, the Avenue team attended a celebratory “Made in Portland” themed luncheon at the Nines Hotel in honor of the recipients. During the fun-filled event, the 40 Under 40 recipients were announced and given their awards. The celebration included drinks, amazing food and even better conversation. Award recipients and their colleagues were able to connect, share their insights and inspire each other. Congrats to the PBJ 40 Under 40 class of 2017 and way to go, Anna!
