Kolbe Named 40 Under 40 by Business St. Charles

December 15, 2006
Scott Kolbe, co-owner of Kolbeco Marketing Resources, has been named one of the region’s 40 Under 40 by Business St. Charles Magazine. The award, which recognizes young professionals who “give so much of their time and talents … in order to promote acheivement,” was presented at a ceremony at the Ameristar Casino Conference Center on December 14, 2006. Scott’s introduction, as given by Kevin Riggs of Cole and Associates:

After 10 years with some of America’s largest companies, Scott Kolbe joined Kolbeco Marketing Resources, a firm founded by his wife Lauren. As Vice President of Business Development, he’s helped Kolbeco grow nearly 500 percent in the past three years alone. An active public servant, Kolbe has served on the Dardenne Prairie Planning & Zoning Commission, and currently serves on the Highway N & 40 Transportation Development District Board and as president of the Dardenne Prairie Board of Alderman. Kolbe was influential in securing the City’s first major retail development – and the up to 500 jobs and $1.5 million in annual sales tax revenues it’s expected to create.

Longtime Kolbeco client and friend, Jeremy Malensky of Dutchman Realty and The American Way Group, was also awarded a spot on the 40 Under 40 list.

Kolbe celebrated the award with family, friends, Kolbeco staff, and Dardenne Prairie Mayor Pam Fogarty, who gave extra cheers as Riggs talked of the progress and development in Dardenne Prairie.

Kolbeco congratulates Scott, and the entire 40 Under 40 Class of 2006.
