Alumna Named to Nashville Business Journal’s ’40 Under 40’ List

Alex Hughes, a 2010 public relations graduate who now serves as the vice president for talent and retention at the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, was recently named to the Nashville Business Journal’s list of “40 Under 40.” The list aims to honor 40 of the city’s most outstanding professionals who are under the age of 40. Hughes was chosen as a winner for 2017 from over 600 nominations received.

The independent panel of judges who reviewed the nominations based their decisions off each candidate’s demonstration of talent in business, commitment to the community and willingness to go above and beyond in all they do. Hughes’s profile highlights her integral part in “more than 75 company relocations or expansions to Nashville” and her assistance in increasing brand recognition and talent connections for over 200 local companies.
