Twenty years ago, we created the Forty Under 40 awards program to spotlight our community’s young professionals who, while often balancing family responsibilities, also were finding time to contribute their talents to Rochester’s many non-profit organizations. We have been gratified at the stature that this award has garnered over the years.
We hope that in some small way we have encouraged younger people to find the time to become more involved in our community’s non-profit organizations. Their contributions of time and talent enrich our community.
To commemorate the 20th anniversary, we are delighted to publish this special publication. It contains profiles of the 2014 honorees, as well as updated information on hundreds of those we have recognized in prior years.
The past honorees profiled here—reached through our Forty Under 40 alumni survey and follow-up calls—are continuing to enjoy success. Fortunately for Rochester, they also are continuing to find time to volunteer. And so we are proud to highlight them and their accomplishments again.
A very special thank you goes to the Simon Business School at the University of Rochester and First Niagara, our event sponsors, as well as to all of the advertisers who have helped to make this publication possible.
We are committed to continuing the tradition of honoring Rochester’s up-and-coming leaders. And we hope to see you at this year’s special 20th-anniversary luncheon on Thursday, Nov. 20, where we will recognize current as well as former honorees.
