The NJBIZ 40 Under 40 awards honor young professionals, as you may have guessed, under the age of 40 making moves in the Garden State. Some names you may know, others you may be seeing for the first time – but we’re betting it won’t be the last.
Following a nomination process, entries were evaluated by an independent panel of judges to recognize five honorees in each of eight categories.
The 2018 40 Under 40 awards will be held September 20 at 6:00 pm at iPlay America in Freehold. Join us to celebrate this year’s winners by registering on our event page.
