Under 40s: Where are you now?

May 02, 2013 |
Julie S. Higginbotham

Our May issue will be published soon, bringing the stories of this year's "40 Under 40" honorees to your mailbox, desktop, or preferred mobile reading device. I had a great time learning about these outstanding young professionals, and I know you'll enjoy "meeting" them, too. 

This year's class joins 280 prior honorees with equally stellar achivements, who continue to shape the built environment as well as their profession and their communities. 

A lot can happen in seven years, and we don't want to lose track of any of our Under 40s. If you're a prior recipient and you've changed your job, or just your e-mail address, since you were honored, I'd appreciate it if you'd shoot me an e-mail and let me know where you've landed. We have some interesting retrospective coverage coming up, and we'd love to know where you've been and what you're working on.

Please write me at: jhigginbotham@sgcmail.com.

I look forward to hearing from you, and meeting you and other young leaders at our upcoming Under 40 Leadership Summit (Oct. 9-11, at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco). Stay tuned for registration details!
