North Bay Business Journal Names 2014 Forty Under 40

The Business Journal today released the names of the winners of its eighth annual Forty Under 40 awards.

The winners, selected from more than 120 nominations, were chosen on the basis of their leadership in companies and organizations as well as their participation within the communities across the North Bay.

“The first thing one will notice about this year’s list of winners is that there are 53 recipients — a first for this award over its eight years,” said Business Journal Publisher Brad Bollinger. “And there is a reason for this: We had a record outpouring of very deserving nominees,” he said.

“The number and quality of nominees likely reflects an ongoing and accelerating generational shift in the workplace, in which younger workers are taking on higher levels of responsibility,” Mr. Bollinger said. “So we asked ourselves, ‘Why let an arbitrary number exclude very qualified people?’ Our answer was we shouldn’t, and we didn’t. Congratulations to everyone.”

Recipients of the 2014 awards, selected by the Journal editorial staff, will be honored at a gala reception on April 30, 4–6:30 p.m., at the Hyatt Vineyard Creek in Santa Rosa. Tickets are available for $65 per person or $675 for a table of 10, including company name on the table. Registration at closes April 25.
