This year's NextGen Leaders are poised to take Kansas City to the next level.
The NextGen Leaders program honors 25 rising stars in Kansas City business. A panel of independent judges selected the honorees. They will be honored at a private luncheon on July 26 and will have profiles published online and in the weekly edition the same day.
As part of our announcement of the class of 2019 NextGen honorees, we asked them to submit a photo and tell us their favorite part about Kansas City's business community. Their answers are varied and show the enthusiasm and potential in this group of emerging leaders.
To be eligible, nominees must live and work in the Kansas City metro area. The program seeks to recognize the budding talent and to connect these emerging leaders while helping build their knowledge and skill sets.
Jy'Juan Maze is the president of Maze Freight Solutions. Her favorite thing about the Kansas City business community: "The Abundant Support."
