2018 40 Under 40: Britton Jobe, 34

Partner, Neale & Newman LLP

Posted online

Britton Jobe is a law firm partner by day and a community advocate around the clock. Take Uber and Lyft for example. They might not be operating in Springfield but for Jobe and others pushing to amend city code permitting the transportation network companies. His next burning issue: to improve the aesthetics of the city’s front doors – the transportation routes to and from the airport and along the major highways. Jobe always has economic development on the mind.

Neale & Newman LLP named Jobe partner a few years ago. Jobe served as 2017 chairman for The Network’s Leadership Council, and in turn the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce group named him the Young Professional of the Year.
