A Night to Celebrate Achievement in Action

The 17th Class of 40 Under Forty.

They made it into 40 Under Forty this year based on what they’ve done with their careers and their efforts to support the region’s non-profit and civic sectors. This year’s class, the 17th installment, convened in the Sprint Plaza at Union Station on May 12 for the annual recognition ceremony, surrounded by spouses, family, friends and co-workers. New acquaintances were forged, old ones rekindled and, we hope, the seeds of future business collaboration sown in a night of food, drink, music and more than an occasional laugh. Congratulations to all.
