Congratulations to JOIN Janesville Co-Chair, Jenny McCarthy, for receiving the 2021 Emerging Leader Award!

At Forward Janesville's 21st Annual Awards Luncheon on March 1, 2022, JOIN Janesville Co-chair, Jenny McCarthy, received the Emerging Leader Award.  The Emerging Leader Award is presented to a young leader who has shown outstanding leadership skills to recruit, educate and mentor other emerging professionals who aspire to be a public/private owner and resource to the next generation of industry leaders.

Jenny grew up in Milton, attended UW-Whitewater, and stayed committed to Rock County by planting roots in Janesville.  Rising from the ranks of intern to her current role as a senior manager at Baker Tilly, Jenny has always demonstrated a desire to excel and a drive to succeed. She quickly established herself as a top performer at Baker Tilly who not only focuses on delivering exceptional client services but is also committed to the development and mentorship of her staff.

Jenny’s passion for service extends to her passion for community. She is one of the inaugural members and current co-chair of the JOIN Janesville Young Professionals and has helped build the organization to over 100 members who focus on personal and professional development, networking and community service. In addition, she also serves on the Leadership Development Academy Board of Directors and is an Ambassador volunteer for Forward Janesville.
