April 15, 2011
Robert Farinholt of D.A. Davidson & Co.'s Investment Banking Group has been named one of SportsOneSource Group's 2011 honorees for the SGB 40 Under 40 Awards.
This year's honorees were announced April 15 and include Farinholt, a banker who specializes in the specialty outdoor and active lifestyle sector. He is part of a growing group of investment bankers with Davidson's Seattle office.
This year’s SGB list again contains individuals from all corners of the sporting good industry who are recognized as leaders making a difference in their businesses and the market. The 40 recipients were selected by a panel of SportsOneSource analysts, editors and industry executives from more than 450 nominations received from around the sporting goods industry.
"These awards are a way to recognize the great work done by younger leaders in our industry," said James Hartford, president, CEO of The SportsOneSource Group, which publishes the SGB trade publication. "The extraordinary and diverse talent nominated this year made it difficult to narrow the list to just forty people. We drew very strong support from prior honorees and other industry leaders to select a prestigious group of individuals and it is our pleasure to honor the next generation of leaders." The SGB 40 Under 40 Awards event will be held in Chicago, IL June 24-26 and is open to other industry professionals, friends and peers to help honor the recipients.
