Puget Sound Business Journal 40 Under 40 Award Winner
“We are proud and excited to announce this year’s Puget Sound Business Journal 40 Under 40 honorees,” said Gordon Prouty, Business Journal publisher. “This year’s class joins the 560 past winners who have been recognized for their outstanding achievements in both career and community. They represent a diverse group of industries and background and demonstrate the innovation, energy and commitment that has made our region great, and will continue to make our region great moving forward.”
The independent panel of judges reviewed lengthy applications completed by the candidates. Through those applications, the candidates shared their accomplishments, leadership philosophies and business challenges. They also explained how they as entrepreneurs — or people inside their firms with entrepreneurial spirit — have taken their companies to new heights.
These individuals represent companies throughout the Puget Sound area of all sizes and a number of industries — technology, health care, financial management, public relations, the nonprofit community and more.
The Business Journal will profile each of these individuals in a special report within the Sept. 13 print edition and will congratulate them in person at a public award ceremony at Showbox Sodo on Sept. 19.
