Somerset County Business Partnership Awards Cory Wilkerson as a Top 40 Under 40 Community and Business Leader for 2023

Bridgewater, NJ – December 12, 2023 – At its 2023 Annual Meeting, the Somerset County Business Partnership (SCBP) honored 40 men and women under the age of 40 as this year’s top young leaders of the business community in Somerset County.  Cory Wilkerson, Project Manager at SSP Architects headquartered in Somerville, NJ, was among those being recognized at the event on December 11 at the Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset.

“This is a most deserved honor for Cory, an innovator and consensus builder who always seeks creative, timely and cost-effective ways to bring new building and renovation projects successfully to the finish line. He goes over and above to build close relationships with project owners, advocate on their behalf, and motivate the design team to work seamlessly with him to solve problems,” said Marcus Rosenau, Principal of SSP Architects.

SCBP made the selection from a large cross section of nominees who have gained success as professionals, entrepreneurs, businesspeople, community leaders and elected officials by demonstrating strong leadership within their jobs, families, and community organizations. Nominees were evaluated for their commitment to business growth and development, professional excellence, leadership, achievements, and community service.

During his tenure at SSP, Cory has developed improved processes to strengthen client services, mentor new personnel, and enhance client communication and guidance. He has successfully managed significant SSP projects for numerous New Jersey school districts, including one of his favorite projects, the creation of the award-winning Interactive Media Center at the Hunterdon Central Regional High School.

“Cory excels in managing major projects, best reflected in his oversight of SSP’s New Jersey Department of Transportation Assessment Project that entailed oversight of over 5,100 staff hours and resulted in an exhaustive 8,000-page report evaluating the Department’s design needs for its hundreds of facilities, and the maintenance required to extend their life expectancy,” said Rosenau.

Reflecting on why he entered the architectural field, Cory said, “Growing up in Nashville, I found it awe inspiring to closely observe the built and natural environment around me. Architecture always fascinated me. I knew from an early age this was the career I wanted to pursue.”
