Forty Leaders Under 40 Award

Awarded on Thursday, February 20th, 2014

William Blake, Sales Manager for Tar Heel Basement Systems, was selected to the 2014 class of “40 Leaders Under 40”. This annual award, given by the Triad Business Journal, honors individuals under the age of 40 that show tremendous drive, intellect and passion for their industry.

Will, age 28, was joined by 39 other young professionals from a wide range of businesses, both big and small. Will’s innovation and hard-work are a few of the contributing factors, but his ability to increase Tar Heel Basement Systems’ annual sales by nearly 80% each year since 2011 is what really made him stand out amongst the rest. Additionally, Will’s continuous involvement in the community and local organizations is just another way he hopes to inspire others.
