Rupa Patel, MD, MPH, DTM&H among three St. Louisans selected to national list of influential young executives

Dr. Patel of Washington University School of Medicine, Mark Bini of Express Scripts, and Amy Schnettgoecke of Emerson have been selected to a national list of influential young executives. The Business Journals’ Influencers: Rising Stars spotlights 100 people in business across the country who are having an impact relatively early in their careers on their companies and their communities. And, because they’re still early in their careers, these executives could be shaping how business gets done in cities across the country for years to come.

Bini, Schnettgoecke, Patel and the rest of the Influencers: Rising Stars were identified in conjunction with editors and staff writers across The Business Journals’ network of more than 40 publications, including the St. Louis Business Journal. The first-of-its kind list draws in large part from the various Forty Under 40 profiles and similar efforts produced by The Business Journals publications over the past year.

From that initial pool of well more than 1,000 executives who’ve been profiled locally over the past 12 months, the field was narrowed to ultimately spotlight the 100 executives featured for Rising Stars.

Dr. Patel is an assistant professor medicine, Infectious Diseases Division, and has been recognized for launching the HIV prevention clinic at Washington University School of Medicine.
