September 7, 2013 - Navin Pasem, received the Young Businessperson of the Year Award
SABA's President Elect, Navin Pasem, received the Young Businessperson of the Year Award on Saturday September 7, 2013 at the Tampa Indo US Chamber of Commerce's Annual Gala event, The Banyan Ball. The Chamber recognizes the professional achievements of its members (and nonmembers) based on very competitive criteria for the select few awards that are handed out. Navin received the award beating out some of Tampa's fastest rising stars for candidates ages 35 and younger. Also, especially worth noting is that this was the very first time an attorney or a law firm was recognized for the award. Past awards have focused heavily on conventional businesses and healthcare institutions. Job well done, Navin!
