Surrey Board of Trade CEO Anita Huberman has been named a one of the top 40 influential people under 40 years old.

The 2011 Top 40 under 40 winners were announced by Business in Vancouver newspaper Dec. 13.

As CEO of the Surrey business lobby group, Huberman oversees 400 volunteers and a budget of nearly $1 million.

She has been an SBOT employee since she graduated from SFU with a bachelor of arts and communications in 1996.

After becoming CEO in 2007, Huberman created new awards programs, such as the Surrey Women in Business Awards. She also spearheaded the SBOT’s first trade mission to a foreign country when she joined 80 business people on a trip to China in 2007.

She undertook a similar trade mission to India this year, and is planning one to Brazil next year.

“The solid international trade portfolio has been one of my greatest accomplishments,” she said in a release.

“I also helped build an international trade centre. I went to consulate offices and created relationships that no one has had in the board of trade and chamber industry in B.C. ”

Outside of work she is a director of the Surrey Foundation, which raises money to give to not-for-profit organizations.
