Memphis, Tenn – The Greater Memphis Chamber announces the names of the ten young professionals to be featured in the Memphis Crossroads Magazine: 2013 Young Memphis annual issue.

Now in its third year, the Young Memphis issue has received local and national awards each year including a MarCom Gold Award and a PRSA Vox Gold Award.  It was created to give exposure to Memphis’ future business leaders and to show our young professionals what they can accomplish in our unique city.

The qualifications include being a Chamber member and under 40. Nominations were received through the Chamber’s social media outlets and through email.
