C&J’s Owner, Jamie Berger, named to this year’s 40 under 40

Jamie Berger named one of Central PA’s Forty Under 40
Harrisburg, PA (September 1, 2011)

On Tuesday, October 18, Jamie Berger will be honored as one of Central Penn Business Journal’s 2011 Forty Under 40 award recipients for her commitment to business growth, professional excellence and the community at an evening reception and awards program at Hilton Harrisburg from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. This year marks the program’s 17th anniversary.

Jamie is President and founder of C&J Catering of Harrisburg. Jamie started the Company in December 2004, from her home. With a passion for entertaining, the business quickly grew large enough to lease a humble commercial space in Mechanicsburg, PA in early 2006. By 2009, having outgrown this small space, she leased a 7000+ square foot space in Harrisburg, PA—the current corporate office of C&J Catering. This space has more than 5000 square foot commercial kitchen and logistics center as well as 2000+ square feet of design, décor and storage space in order to accommodate the thousands of events catered each year.

This year’s nominations for the Forty Under 40 program ended in late April. A panel of four judges, comprised of past award recipients, reviewed and scored the nominees to determine the top forty list. 2011 judges were Tonia Ulsh, Chief Operating Officer, Mountz Jewelers; Deepa Mehta Balepur, Principal/Partner, The Wolman Group and RE/MAX Associates of Lancaster County; Brian Wassell, Partner with Trout Ebersole Groff; and Joshua George, Associate, Site Design Concepts.
Following the event, Jamie and the other award recipients will be featured in a special supplement to the October 21st edition of the Central Penn Business Journal. The list of winners will also appear in the 2012 Book of Lists publication.
The awards event is open to the public. Tickets can be purchased online for $90 per person at www.centralpennbusiness.com/events.

Sponsors of the 2011 Forty Under 40 program include Members 1st Federal Credit Union, Comcast Business Class, Eastern University, Highmark Blue Shield, Hilton Harrisburg, Infiniti of Mechanicsburg, Netrepid and Classic Drycleaners & Laundromats.
