join the St. Louis Business Journal's 40 Under 40 honorees in 2017.

The St. Louis Business Journal's 2017 40 Under 40 class includes two Webster University alumni: Shannon Pasternak BS ’06 and Nick Riordon MS ’07.

Pasternak, who earned her bachelor's degree in accounting from Webster in 2006, currently serves as an administrative leader and chief of staff for PwC’s Missouri market, where her unofficial job description might be “making people look good.”

She was recognized for her "compassionate leadership" approach as well as her volunteer efforts with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, most recently helping to raise $50,000 for the St. Louis Chapter of the organization. Click here for the full Business Journal profile of Pasternak [sub.].   

Riordon, who earned his master's in finance from Webster in 2007, is senior vice president at Central Bank of St. Louis, specializing in dental practice financing and managing one of the bank's largest loan portfolios. To honor his twin brother, an Army tank commander who was killed in Iraq in June 2007, Riordan and his family established the Lt. Daniel P. Riordan Memorial Scholarship at St. John Vianney High School to provide four-year scholarships. Click here for the full Business Journal profile on Riordon [sub.].

Pasternak and Riordan will be honored with the rest of the 40 Under 40 Class of 2017 during a dinner on Thursday, Feb. 16. This year’s event is proudly sponsored by Webster University.

Since 1995, the St. Louis Business Journal has sought nominations for young leaders who are already making their mark on the local business community. To be admitted to this exclusive class, a candidate must be under 40 years of age, and be a mover and shaker both in business and in the community.
