ENR New York's Top 20 Under 40

Text size: A A
[ Page 1 of 9 ]

The young professionals selected for ENR New York's Top 20 Under 40 list this year span a variety of disciplines, from urban planning to construction management. As a group, they represent work on a range of projects, such as building bridges, improving water quality and boosting audio-video design. But they also share a few things in common, namely a passion for the fields they've chosen.

That is evidenced by their professional achievements, honors and awards and by how they have given back to their communities.

Like last year's winners, this year's rising stars do a lot of community service work. Many participate in the ACE Mentor Program or other initiatives aimed at encouraging students to consider industry careers. Also like last year, many of this year's winners are involved in environmental sustainability initiatives and have obtained certification in at least one of the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) credentials.

To qualify for the competition, nominees had to be located in New York, New Jersey or Connecticut and be under age 40 as of Jan. 1. Candidates were nominated by colleagues or could nominate themselves.

Submission forms asked nominees for descriptions of their demonstrated excellence and leadership qualities and career experiences, including current job responsibilities, project work, certifications, professional licensures and/or accreditations. Candidates were asked for specific community service involvement and why they chose such involvement.

The six industry judges, noteworthy in their own right (see p. 14), selected the winners from this year's pool of 59 candidates.

After the winners were chosen, ENR New York followed up with a few questions that the 20 had the option of answering for readers. These included what their short- and/or long-term goals are, what drove them to enter their particular field and what they might be doing if they had not taken that path. Many of those responses also appear in the profiles that follow.
