Each year, the Philadelphia Business Journal recognizes the region’s up and coming leaders for annual 40 Under 40 awards program.

Thomas Young, President and CEO of the World Trade Center of Greater Philadelphia (WTCGP), is among the select group of Philadelphia leaders to receive this award. This past August, Young made history when he became the first Black President and CEO of the World Trade Center, Philadelphia – a nonprofit global business connector that is one of 320+ World Trade Centers in over 90 countries. Young leverages relationships honed most recently as a senior associate at Bellevue Strategies, where he helped secure $27 million in state funding for capital projects, worked on procurement opportunities for a minority-business portfolio and served as liaison to the Delaware River Port Authority.
