American Red Cross North Jersey Region CEO Mathieu Nelessen was named a winner in the 2013 NJBIZ Forty Under 40 awards program.

The Forty Under 40 awards program honors men and women under the age of 40 who have been making headlines in their field and who share a commitment to business growth, to professional excellence and to the community. To qualify, a nominee had to meet selection criteria that included working in New Jersey and possessing significant authority for decision making within a company or organization.

All of us in the region couldn’t agree more with the selection! Six months after joining the organization as Regional CEO, Mathieu was faced with leading staff and volunteers through the largest disaster response in New Jersey history. Embracing the challenge, Mathieu’s exceptional leadership skills were evident during Superstorm Sandy and continue to benefit us every day with his oversight of all Red Cross services performed in the North Jersey Region.

 Congratulations Mathieu!

The winners were chosen by an independent panel of judges including: Aldonna R. Ambler, CMC, CSP, The Growth Strategist; John Farrell, Rider University; Brenda Hopper, Small Business Development Centers; James Morris, Rutgers University; James F. Shannon, Choose: New Jersey.
