Class of 2003 40 Leaders Under Forty

This year marks the 10th Anniversary of Peoria's 40 Leaders Under Forty. The members of the 2003 Class of 40 Leaders Under Forty were chosen because of their commitment to professional development, taking entrepreneurial risks, adapting to an expanding world marketplace, and investing in their communities and the people who live there. They, in turn, will inspire future leaders, who will build on the skills and attitudes demonstrated by these individuals.


Business Profile

Like many business owners, entrepreneur Mark Petit already had experience in his industry of choice before taking the plunge with his own business.
