Naples, FL: (October 17, 2022) . . . Professional photographer and social media expert Samantha Boom, founder of Oh Snap Media in Naples, was awarded the prestigious “40 Under 40” honor at Business Observer’s banquet and awards ceremony held on Thursday, Oct 13, 2022. More than 600 business people attended the evening’s festivities honoring this year’s class of movers and shakers under 40 years of age.
Business Observer is the leading provider of business and economic information affecting the Gulf Coast, specializing in reporting on industry and economic trends. “40 Under 40” is its annual professional awards competition that honors and celebrates the best of the best of up-and-comers on the west coast of Florida. Since 2003, Business Observer has published a “40 Under 40” issue every year to help discover the brightest minds and boldest executives from Tampa Bay to Naples. This year’s “40 Under 40” theme was about mentorship. Each year the magazine chooses a theme to mark both the winner and the world we live in. “More than ever, Business Observer believes success today requires leaning on trusted mentors, the people in your life who have shaped who you are and who you want to be,” explains editor Mark Gordon. “This year’s stellar group of leaders is committed to business growth, professional excellence and community service,” he adds.
Ms. Bloom was selected from more than 210 nominations submitted from entrepreneurs, executives and professionals in any field or industry, including nonprofits, from Polk through Collier counties. A team of business editors evaluated nominations, looking for people who hustle and create their own success, people who are risk-takers and people who are willing to go against conventional wisdom.
Judges noted what makes Bloom stand “head and shoulders” above the competition is her ability to create and maintain online digital presences and consistently high social media scores for clients through visuals, effective branding that drive sales through engagement for destinations like 5th Avenue South and Downtown Naples Historic districts.
Bloom was born in Greenwich, Conn., and raised in Bermuda and Georgia before relocating to Naples at age 20. In 2010, she established Oh Snap Media, a digital marketing and photography firm, focusing on website design and creating images for magazine content, social media campaigns and branded event planning services. She cites her mother Nancy Barone, a commercial real estate maven, as her business role model and the motivation to become a successful business entrepreneur in her Q&A: https://www.businessobserverfl.com/article/samantha-bloom-39.
