Hype Icons 2017 | The Westin Hotel


HYPE is Richmond’s place for young professionals to engage, connect, and learn. A program of the Greater Richmond Chamber, HYPE’s annual Icon & Workplace Awards celebrates young professionals making a difference in our community. These young professionals knew how to let loose – embracing the lobster claws, unicorn mask, and silver flamingo props with gusto! Many Congratulations to Jay Carpenter of The Fahrenheit Group for The Front Runner Award; Elizabeth Howley, the Executive Director and Co-Founder of The Next Move Program; Alliance Group for the Small Business YP Workplace Awards; and Single Stone Consulting for the Large Business YP Workplace Awards!
