POUGHKEEPSIE, NY – Revealed on Thursday, February 13, 2020, Andrew Mendez-Spera, Founder + CEO of Tipsy Social, has been selected to the 2020 class of Forty Under 40 Mover & Shaker Award recipients by the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce (DCRCOC).

According to the DCRCOC website for the awards, “The Forty Under 40 Mover & Shaker awards are bestowed annually to 40 individuals under the age of 40 who have shown a strong commitment to the Hudson Valley. A selection committee comprised of former honorees judge nominations based on professional and community achievements.” Andrew’s announcement came along with nine other honorees including Kristin Delia of Impact PR & Communications, Michael DiDonato of Nuvance Health, and Ryan O’Sullivan of Heroic Foods – to name a few.

The news came as a total surprise. When I received the call, I had no clue what to expect. It’s so humbling to know that people recognize the work that I do and the impact it is making in the region. I’ve always been the type of person to want my work to speak for itself. This award reinforces that hardwork, dedication, and doing the ‘right’ thing paysoff.
