The Washington Business Journal has named McLean Quinn, president of EYA LLC, to their "40 under 40" list of the most influential young professionals in the Washington metro region. This distinction honors the region's brightest young business leaders who demonstrate both community leadership as well as professional accomplishments. McLean's strategic visioning, collaborative style, and innovative perspective is increasingly relied upon by EYA and its many private and public partners, and he and EYA are proud of the WBJ's generous recognition.
