Blackbaud Leaders Named 2018 40 Under 40 Winners

Amy Chase, Blackbaud’s vice president of professional services, and Ryan Roberts, Blackbaud’s director of risk management, have been selected as a 2018 Forty Under 40 winner by the Charleston Regional Business Journal, nominated by members of the Charleston community. 2018 marks the 21st anniversary of the Forty Under 40 awards.

“It is an honor to be nominated by Communities in Schools (CIS),which provides critical programming and support for students in Charleston County Schools to empower them to stay in school, for this award,” said Chase. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve on the board of CIS, as well as to be leading a team at Blackbaud that provides services to social good organizations to better their missions.”

“I’m honored to be recognized for this award and represent Blackbaud and all the great work we do as well,” said Roberts. “The majority of my experience getting involved in the nonprofit community happened because of introductions I made here at Blackbaud and customers I learned about through our volunteer and philanthropy program.  It’s great that Blackbaud encourages employees to get involved with causes that are meaningful to us.”

A panel of judges determined who among the nominees would be named to the 2018 class of Forty Under 40. This group of 40 individuals were recognized at its Forty Under 40 event last night at Alhambra Hall in Mount Pleasant, S.C.  Since 1998, this elite 40 has been comprised of people under 40 years of age who have excelled in the professional arena and in community involvement.
