2019 40 Under Forty Awards Honorees

This year we received 177 nominations, an 8 percent increase from 2018. Narrowing down the list to 40 deserving winners was a difficult task. More importantly, our winners provide evidence that our region has a vast young talent pool. As a state, we must do everything in our power to keep them here.

Our 2019 winners hail from the private, public and nonprofit sectors and from organizations both small and large.
