Arvig’s Brett Christiansen Named One of Prairie Business Magazine’s 40 Under 40 Professionals

Arvig is excited to announce Brett Christiansen, Engineering Manager at Arvig, has been selected for inclusion on Prairie Business magazine’s 2018 40 Under 40 list. The list features 40 of the top business professionals under the age of 40 in the northern Plains. Christiansen is featured in the December issue of the magazine.

“We are extremely proud to see Brett named as one of the top 40 professionals under 40 in our region by Prairie Business,” said Andy Klinnert, Director of Network Operations at Arvig, and Brett’s supervisor. “I am certain the positive impact he has already had in our industry will only continue to grow. But even more so than our industry, through his work and personal character, the positive impact he has had on the lives of the residents across the region is what I hold in the highest regard.”

Winners are nominated by supervisors or peers within their organizations. According to Prairie Business, they received more than 125 nominations from around the region.

“The region’s economy is strong, and that’s really giving young people an opportunity to shine,” said Tom Dennis, editor of Prairie Business. “And not only are these high achievers standouts in their work, but also they show exceptional devotion to their families and communities. The work-life balance they’ve achieved is impressive — and in my view, that makes their individual success stories all the more inspiring.”

The 40 winners are honored in the magazine, which is also available digitally here.
