London, ON | September 26, 2013

The innovator behind the world’s largest online voice talent marketplace, David Ciccarelli, was recently revealed as one of the “Economic Trailblazers” on Business London’s inaugural Top 20 Under 40 list.

David, the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Voices, was selected out of 150 nominated leaders by a judging committee that included representatives from the most prestigious academic, banking, and marketing institutions in the region.

Business London’s Top 20 list recognizes young, innovative leaders who have not only contributed to London’s economy, but also to the community-at-large. The individuals on the list were selected based on their business achievements, industry innovation, growth, development, and involvement with the public.

“It is a great honour to be included in this list with some of the most inspiring, engaged, and accomplished leaders our city has to offer,” David expressed. “Business London’s Top 20 Under 40 list is a collection of success stories that will inspire other young entrepreneurs and future leaders, an outcome that Voices is proud to be a part of.”

A celebration of the leaders honoured on the list will be held at Museum London on Wednesday, November 13 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. The honourees will each receive a crystal award to mark the feat, as well as a $6,500.00 scholarship to attend Ivey Business School’s Management Program. A special print and digital feature on the Top 20 Under 40 recipients will appear in the November issue of Business London.

The Top 20 Under 40 awards are presented by Business London magazine, and sponsored by Emerging Leaders, GenNext United Way of London & Middlesex, Harrison Pensa, Ivey Business School, Nothers Signs & Recognition, Lovers At Work and The London Free Press.
