If 50 is the new 40, then the honorees for the NJBIZ Forty Under 40 Awards are really just getting started, and what a way to kick things off.

Chosen by an independent panel of judges following an open nomination process, the individuals recognized on this year’s list contribute to their own industries – spanning health care, finance, sports, law, education and more – as leaders and founders, partners, executives and above all trailblazers. And, their achievements and continuing efforts are also felt throughout the Garden State community at large.

Learn more about this year’s honorees and their accomplishments when we celebrate the 2021 Forty Under 40 class on Sept. 30; tickets for this year’s virtual event are available here. You can find more information about all our NJBIZ Events here.

Honorees appear listed alphabetically below.
