On Thursday, September 15th, Griff was honored by the Puget Sound Business Journal as one of the Seattle area’s 40 Under 40. A panel of Seattle businesspeople selected the 30 finalists from a pool of nearly 300 applicants.
“These are the business leaders you need to know,” read the Puget Sound Business Journal’s site. “In addition to their contributions to the business community, this year’s 40 Under 40 honorees are active in the local community, working with nonprofits and other organizations in between their busy schedules…Their companies and organizations are some of the most influential in the Puget Sound region, and the decisions they make each day impact the regional economy.”

“It was an honor to represent the Combat Flip Flops team and the veteran community amongst a stellar group of business leaders,” said Griff. “I was also surprised to see the 40 Under 40 alumni group show up in force. It was amazing to see how many of them have stayed connected and continued to work, push, motivate, and drive one another. What an incredible community that I look forward to connecting with.”
Over 400 people attended the sold out luncheon at Benaroya Hall in Seattle to honor the young leaders. For more information on the 40 Under 40 and the winners, please visit the Puget Sound Business Journal.
