Matt Ragona a runner up; Charlotte’s 40 Over 40!

2 Apr 2021

Matt Ragona, NCARB, MBA, LEED AP – Nominated for Charlotte Ledger’s 40 Over 40

It’s back: The city’s hottest new contest, The Charlotte Ledger 40 Over 40, is returning for a second year!

40 Over 40 honors and celebrates those who are making mighty contributions to this place we all call home — even if they are aged 40+. It’s no secret that we’re all enduring some tough times. But there’s hope out there: Many people in our community are working hard to improve the quality of life in Charlotte, and we’re going to find them and celebrate them.

You can help: Help us discover some of these unrecognized heroes among us. Last year, our inaugural crop of 40 Over 40 winners included impressive leaders in business, the arts, charities and many other areas. This year, we want to cast an even broader net and ensure we’re including educators, healthcare workers, first responders and others who are making Charlotte a better place to live in many different ways, all over town.

We’re determined to find the unheralded over-40s in our midst — not the big-name corporate chieftains and headline-grabbing civic leaders everybody already knows. We recognize that there are plenty of ambitious under-40 go-getters out there, too — our city is a better place because of them, and other awards programs recognize their achievements and potential.

40 Over 40 celebrates people who have taken lessons learned in their 20s and 30s and are applying them in middle-age and beyond.
