Infineon Raceway's Grafals Named to North Bay Business Journal's "Forty Under 40" List

SONOMA, Calif. (March 21, 2008) -- Sara Grafals has been named one of the North Bay Business Journal's top "Forty Under 40" business leaders. The recipients were chosen on the basis of leadership in companies and organizations across the North Bay.

Grafals, 39, is the Vice President of Finance at Infineon Raceway and oversees daily business functions and administration at the raceway, as well as risk management and human resources. She was selected from a list of more than 115 nominees.

"This business has a lot of moving parts and Sara's the one we rely on to keep them connected," said Steve Page, president and general manager at Infineon Raceway. "Her analytical skills, her maturity and her upbeat personality are central to the chemistry of our management team and our success as a company. This is well-deserved recognition."

Grafals, who lives in Fairfield, has been employed at Infineon Raceway since 2001. She is a native of Alabama and graduated from Troy University with a degree in accounting and business administration.

"I think the biggest challenge has been balancing motherhood and work," said Grafals, who has a 3-year-old daughter. "I think it's made me a better employee and manager. It's a great honor to receive this award and to be able to work with such a great group of people who are both supportive and a lot of fun."

Winners of the 2007 and 2008 "Forty Under 40 "awards will be recognized at a gala reception on April 17 at the Fountain Grove Inn in Santa Rosa in the North Bay.
