The Chamber first launched 40 Under 40 in 2015 with the intent that every other year we would honor the younger talent on the Island. We’re delighted to recognize these movers and shakers and to show our appreciation for their entrepreneurial skills. It’s incredible to see such a diverse group of younger talent on Martha’s Vineyard!

Angela Prout Partner/Co-founder, Shored Up Digital Shored Up Digital I’m in the business of promoting other businesses, which basically means I get to be a cheerleader for all of the great work that our clients are doing on Martha’s Vineyard–who wouldn’t love that? I am constantly impressed by the incredible effort and talent of our local small businesses, and I am proud to be able to showcase them to a broader audience. Nothing gets me more excited than discovering a new business on Martha’s Vineyard and working to figure out how to best bring their work to a broader audience. We are a small island but we are mighty, and our collective power is strong! I am so grateful to our clients for trusting us with their brands and reputations, and I am honored to represent their hard work.

Anthony Holand Metal Sculptor & Owner, Tuck and Holand Metal Sculptors A unique talent and skilled sculptor dedicated to the traditional craft of copper repoussé, Tony is best known for his copper weathervanes which are collected worldwide, featured internationally in publications such as LeMonde, Architectural Digest, and the Robb Report and have been exhibited by the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, as well as in the National Heritage Museum in Lexington. In 2010 his studio, Tuck and Holand Metal Sculptors, was named by the Governor as one of the “1000 great places in MA.” Tony worked alongside his partner, the late Travis Tuck, for memorable projects including the epic 10ft, 1 ton Nittany Lion weathervane at Penn State’s Beaver Stadium until 2002. Fourteen years later, the studio continues to attract a distinguished clientele drawn to the incredible weathervanes, wall maps and custom sculpture limited only by the imagination and budget of the client.
