Phoenix, AZ – Asian Corporate & Entrepreneur Leaders (ACEL) is proud to announce Jenny Poon as our 2014 Community Leader of the Year, for demonstrating entrepreneurial spirit, leadership, and innovation. As the founder of two Phoenix-based start-ups, Poon sets a fine example for young professionals not to be afraid to chart your own path, and craft your own solutions if you see a gap that needs to be filled in the community. Poon did just this – by starting her own boutique design agency, eeko studio and co-founding CO+HOOTS, a co-op space in downtown Phoenix meant to act as a business incubator for start-ups and budding entrepreneurs.

Born and raised in Minnesota, Poon studied Journalism and Global Studies at the University of Minnesota, and Graphic Design at the Art Institute of Minnesota. She has since carved out a progressively successful career working at various publishing houses and publicatons, and eventually coming to Phoenix in 2006, where she worked for the likes of 944, and the Arizona Republic, before starting her own design agency. In 2012, AZ Central lauded her as on of the Top 35 Entrepreneurs under 35.

Join us in congratulating Jenny on her success, and celebrating her contributions as an entrepreneur and as an advocate for our community in the Phoenix metro on January 17 at ACELebration of Leadership Gala
