NJBIZ has revealed the 2017 winners of one of its most popular awards: the Forty Under 40. These up-and-coming stars of the New Jersey business community have achieved professional excellence at a young age, representing the future of their industries and the state as a whole.

This year, NJBIZ is doing something different: announcing five winners in each of eight different major industries.

These accomplished young professionals are names to remember in their fields in the years to come, but they share many characteristics of great businesspeople, from a commitment to success, professional achievement and contributions to the community.

Their defining characteristic is, of course, their success at a young age.

NJBIZ and our Forty Under 40 sponsors will celebrate these tremendous young executives and entrepreneurs at an awards ceremony starting at 6 p.m. Sept. 11 at iPlay America in Freehold.
