2021 Economic Development 40 Under 40 Awards

Congratulations to the Class of 2021! Recognized on March 16, 2021 at a virtual awards ceremony held in conjunction with the International Economic Development Council Leadership Summit, these 40 young professionals are channeling their diverse perspectives and skillsets to build strong, inclusive and forward thinking communities as the economic development industry faces challenges like never before.

A selection committee of six professionals in the economic development industry independently reviewed and ranked nominees to determine the top 40 individuals under 40 years of age whose leadership, dedication and innovation have had a significant impact on their organizations, communities and the economic development industry itself.

We encourage you to congratulate and connect with these individuals, via LinkedIn or at conferences, as a way of building relationships and generating ideas across the industry.

Nominations for the 2023 Economic Development 40 Under 40 Awards will open in fall of 2022.
