Jonas Peterson, CEO of the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation has been selected as a winner in the economic development profession’s “40 Under 40” awards, the first-ever awards program recognizing young talent in the economic development profession.

A five-member selection committee chose the winners from a pool of more than 150 candidates based on their exceptional contributions to the economic development industry. The award’s program was managed by Development Counsellors International, a New York-based firm that specializes in economic development marketing.

“Our organization hired Jonas with high expectations – to start-up, build and lead an advanced economic development organization in one of Los Angeles County’s fastest growing regions. Now, just over two years into that process we’re pleased to say he has exceeded our expectations and possesses in abundance innovation and expertise in economic development,” according to SCVEDC Co-Chairs Don Fleming & Calvin Hedman.

DCI’s “40 Under 40” award was designed to discover the economic development profession’s rising stars.

“The people chosen by the selection committee represent a bright future for the economic development world,” said Andy Levine, president of DCI. “They are a new breed of results-driven, place makers.  We’re very pleased to see Jonas among the winners.”

DCI officially announced the winners on January 27, 2013 at an awards reception during the International Economic Development Council Leadership Summit in Orlando and will feature an in-depth profile of each on its website during 2013.
