Jonas Peterson, CEO of the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation has been selected as a winner in the economic development profession's "40 Under 40" awards.

The head of the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation was named one of the “40 Under 40” of economic professionals, the local organization announced Friday.

 Jonas Peterson, CEO of the SCVEDC, was selected as one of the winners by Development Counsellors International, a New York-based firm that specializes in economic development marketing.

The 40 Under 40 award was designed to discover the economic development profession’s rising stars, said its president, Andy Levine.

A five-member selection committee chose the winners from a pool of more than 150 candidates based on their contributions to the economic development industry.

“The people chosen by the selection committee represent a bright future for the economic development world,” Levine said. “They are a new breed of results-driven, place makers.  We’re very pleased to see Jonas among the winners.”

The SCVEDC hired Peterson with high expectations – to start-up, build and lead an advanced economic development organization in one of Los Angeles County’s fastest growing regions,” said Don Fleming and Calvin Hedman, both co-chairs of the SCVEDC, in a joint press release.

“Now, just over two years into that process we’re pleased to say he has exceeded our expectations and possesses in abundance innovation and expertise in economic development,” Fleming and Hedman said.
