2015 40 Under 40 Winners
Despite the diversity in their backgrounds and career paths, the 2015 40 Under 40 winners have many leadership attributes in common.

Now in its eighth year, the Consulting-Specifying Engineer 40 Under 40 program honors young building industry professionals, each of whom was nominated by a mentor. Although their titles are diverse—vice president, director, general manager, president, CEO, principal, and many others—these young men and women have plenty in common. In addition to being 40 Under 40 winners, they are linked by their dedication to their profession, a penchant for leadership, the drive to make a difference in their industries and communities, and determination to excel in everything they do. They also share a passion to give back to their communities and industries by volunteering their time and resources to organizations, such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, Habitat for Humanity, and many others. Many are involved in coaching youth sports and mentoring middle- and high-school students. When they’re not creating award-winning building designs or volunteering, this year’s winners enjoy making wine and beer, building custom furniture, photography, music, hunting, fishing, skiing, and traveling.
