We are proud to introduce our Fast 15 honorees for 2022. These young professionals impact a wide range of professions just a few years after starting their careers. Across disciplines, they set trends, solve problems and bring innovation to their businesses and our region.
The Fast 15 recognition program is designed to spotlight the best and brightest in our area. Candidates were not limited to a particular industry or activity. They include fast-risers who make impacts in large organizations, have enjoyed success as an entrepreneur, or have made their mark locally in some other way.
The editorial staff of the Business Journal selected this year’s class from nearly 50 finalists. Nominations included individuals from the Business Journal’s coverage area of both Northwest Arkansas and the Fort Smith metro area.
There’s no doubt these men and women aspire to great things based on our conversations. At the same time, they inspire great things. Even if they don’t realize it. As the saying goes, you never know who is watching.
The annual Fast 15 issue is traditionally one of our favorites. It’s devoted to recognizing the accomplishments of a group that is just now beginning to make its mark on Northwest Arkansas’ business and cultural scene.
And the best part, possibly, is what lies in front of them. These Fast 15ers all have big dreams, and we’re inclined to believe they are on the right path to becoming part of the next generation of leaders in our area.
Congratulations to the 2022 class of Fast 15ers.
