Jeff Taylor, General Manager at ERA Key Realty Services, was honored last night at Worcester Business Journal’s “40 Under Forty” award ceremony at Mechanics Hall in Worcester.

The 20th annual “40 Under Forty” “honors the rising stars and outstanding young leaders who are shaking up the Central Mass. business community and leading us into the future,” according to Worcester Business Journal.

Taylor, 38, is the second generation of Taylors to receive the award. His stepmother, Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor, who is president and chief operating officer of ERA Key, received the award in 2003. His father, Bruce Taylor, founded ERA Key.

In 2010, he took over management of ERA Key’s Framingham office in addition to the Westborough office. After Distinctive Realty of Marlborough merged with ERA Key in 2011, he took on the responsibility of integrating the new Marlborough office into the ERA...
