The 2021 Young Professional of the Year
The Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce is proud to recognize the outstanding achievements of the businesses, organizations, and individuals who make a difference in our community.
We are pleased to announce the recipient of the 2021 Award of Excellence for Young Professional of the Year, Zach Benson.
Zach has operated his business for 3 years now and actively uses his platform to promote physical development as well as strong mental health while supporting young athletes. Mental health is currently at the forefront of many local discussions and Zach recently provided a free seminar for local youth on Mental Health Awareness. He provides a positive impact for the youth he trains, supports and mentors. He works tirelessly to promote lifelong health practices, creating confidence, promoting physical longevity, and encouraging the highest quality of life.
Zach partnered to create Podium 4Life Foundation to support the mindset and mental health of local youth. He has held fundraisers to provide financial assistance to local families looking to support their children in staying active and healthy. He continues to explore new partnerships with local clubs and sports organizations to grow athletics in our area including football, baseball, track, golf, basketball, soccer speed skating, and hockey. Recently, the Brockville Soccer Club allowed him to use their fields for his athletic development camp as well as a brand new 7 on 7 touch football league. His new high-performance facility opens in mid-September!
He also offers an informative podcast—Athletic Insights, which highlights former professional athletes as well as local elite athletes as guest speakers.
We look forward to celebrating the Young Professional of the Year Award with Zach’s family and friends at the Awards of Excellence Gala being held on Thursday, September 30th at the Sunnidell Golf & Learning Centre. We will also be announcing the recipients for Business of The Year, Small Business of The Year, Community Excellence Award, the Tourism Award, and the Ben Tekamp Award.
