We are pleased to announce that our Client Operations Manager, Lindsay Alderman, has joined the elite ranks of the Des Moines Business Record’s Forty under 40 class of 2013. This honor recognizes that she is among some of the city’s most driven, talented and philanthropic young business leaders that are making a difference.

Candidates are nominated based on both professional success and involvement with community and non-profit organizations. Winners are then chosen by a panel of previous recipients who examine the nominees’ job responsibilities, special projects, board participation, awards and distinguished recognitions in order to make their decision.

“I was surprised, honored and excited to hear that I was a part of this year’s Forty under 40 list,” Alderman explained. “I am extremely passionate about Des Moines and am proud to be grouped with others that share my determination to make it a city of innovation, growth and leadership. Each of my fellow honorees have already demonstrated such impressive strength and accomplishment in their short careers, so I can only imagine the amazing potential the future holds for each of them and what it will mean for the Midwest.”

LightEdge would like to congratulate the entire class of 2013 on their achievements and contributions to Des Moines. Whether they have paved the way in entrepreneurship, volunteered their time to improve our community, exhibited unparalleled leadership within their organization, or mentored other young professionals to follow in their accomplished footsteps, their determination has been recognized and applauded.
