Crain's Detroit Business named Skillman Foundation CFO and Treasurer Danielle Olekszyk to its 40 Under 40 list.

The publication honors achievers in the community with this award that recognizes professionals in Southeast Michigan who have made an impact before age 40.

Olekszyk was chosen for her work to restructure the Foundation's budget during the economic downturn in 2008, enabling The Skillman Foundation to spend $11.4 million more in grants in 2009 and 2010 than is requred by the IRS.

"It didn't take long for me to realize that this was what I was meant to do," Olekszyk told Crain's. "I absolutely love the mission. I'm so committed to it."

The winners will be honored at an annual event Oct. 24 at the Shriners Silver Garden Event Center in Southfield. For more event information, please click here.
