Press Release (ePRNews.com) - FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - May 23, 2017 - The Northwest Arkansas Business Journal this week announced its Fast 15 Class of 2017, and amongst this year’s class was Lineus Medical’s founder and CEO, Spencer Jones. The Fast 15 issue singles out 15 up-and-coming professionals still in their twenties that live and work in Northwest Arkansas.
Whether they work for a startup or a massive company, these young professionals all share the common goal of building great businesses and creating high paying jobs for people in the state. “We’re proud to honor these emerging leaders. I’m sure this is only the beginning of their successful careers,” said Paul Gatling, editor of the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal.
“The interesting part of the process was selecting 15 from the group of applicants,” said Michael Tilley, president and executive editor of Talk Business & Politics and the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal. “On one hand, it was difficult because we had a strong applicant pool. But it was also encouraging to know that the two metro areas are home to so many people who are making the most of their wisdom and work ethic.”
A networking event was held at the Janelle Y. Hebree Alumni House on the University of Arkansas campus to celebrate the Fast 15 Issue going to print. Hosted by the Business Journal, the event included remarks from Matt Twyford, Community Development Regional Manager of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission. Twyford spoke to the various AEDC initiatives and resources available to businesses in the state, echoing the theme of building great jobs in Arkansas. “Northwest Arkansas is creating businesses and attracting talent at an impressive rate.”, said Jones of Lineus Medical. “To continue this growth, we must successfully retain the immense talent currently in our state, as well as keep our budding companies here. I feel like everyone left the event with a renewed ambition to drive local economic growth, and you could really feel that the community was behind our efforts 100%.”
Jones previous honors include induction into to the Arkansas Business 20 in their 20’s Class of 2015, and he served as one of two Arkansas delegates selected to attend the Global Entrepreneurship Summit held in Palo Alto, CA in 2016.
