The Forty Under 40 awards recognize 40 leaders under the age of 40 who have made a significant impact in their business and community early in their careers. The event also celebrates one previous Forty Under 40 recipient, or alumnus, for his or her continued professional success and impact on the community.

This is the 17th year these non-partisan, non-political awards have been presented in the Corridor. Honorees are selected by a committee composed of last year’s Forty Under 40.
