Memphis, Tenn. – The Greater Memphis Chamber released their 2017 Young Memphians list, which will be featured in the Chamber’s summer issue of Memphis Crossroads Magazine published later this summer. 

“These 10 young Memphians represent an inspiring group of individuals who have all found a home in Memphis and have dedicated their time towards making a meaningful impact on their community. The Chamber is honored to share their story which will hopefully motivate others to move here and engage in the growth of Memphis,” said Phil Trenary, President & CEO, Greater Memphis Chamber.

The Memphis Crossroads Young Memphis issue is now in its sixth year and has received local and national awards such as the MarCom Gold Award and a PRSA Vox Gold Award. It was specifically created to highlight Memphis’ future business and community leaders and to show off how our young professionals are making a huge impact on our city.

To qualify for the Young Memphis award, the recipients must be a Chamber member and under 40. Nominations were received through the Chamber’s website, social media outlets and email.

Each Young Memphian will have a full-page profile in the next issue of Memphis Crossroads Magazine, which will be distributed to our member companies by mail and digitally through our Chamber’s weekly e-newsletter. The digital magazine will also be available on the Chamber’s website and social media channels. To find out more and view past issues, visit
