Goldenberg and Gurevich Names to LEO Watch List

LEO Weekly decided that Millennials are getting a bad rap. While 19-33 year olds are thought of as “unmotivated, lost and generally useless” as well as “obsessed with selfies, not selflessness,” that is not the case, the LEO column says.

In fact, the paper has put together its first list of “24 Twentysomethings to Watch,” showcasing Millenials who are already on the move and setting the standard of achievement for their generation. Two of those on the list are Ben Goldenberg and Eric Gurevich.

Ben Goldenberg, 28, is the Jewish Community of Louisville’s marketing director. Passionate about his work, Goldenberg is always looking for ways to increase the visibility of the Jewish Community Center and the Annual Federation Campaign and to engage more people.

He describes himself as a strategic thinker who takes the global impact of the JCL’s efforts into account every day and encourages his coworkers to work ahead, allowing enough time for events and marketing efforts to be well thought out and timely.

“Ben is a real asset to our organization,” said JCL President and CEO Stu Silberman. “He is creative and proactive in his approach to all of our communications efforts. He understands our audiences and looks for new ways to reach them. He is always ready to go the extra mile to make things happen. His inclusion in LEO’s Twentysomethings Watch List is well deserved recognition for the difference he is making on behalf of our community.”

Goldenberg is also involved with the American Red Cross.

Eric Gurevich, 25, is the community outreach coordinator at Old 502 Winery. A first-generation American, he explained in the LEO write up, his “parents fled the Soviet Union to make a better life for themselves and their children. Their perseverance and success is my inspiration to not only better myself but also my greater community.”

Gurevich describes himself in LEO as “deeply interested in collaboration and stacking functions. I’m not afraid to ask for help, especially from people in the know. It’s one thing to lead by example, but an entirely different thing to engage those around you and create something collective.”
