Each year, the Business Observer selects 40 individuals under 40-years-old from the Gulf Coast business community. Carefully selected from nominations and original reporting, these individuals represent the best and brightest from Tampa to Naples.
“There are a lot of publications that do similar lists each year,” says Kat Hughes, Business Observer executive editor. “We wanted our list to stand apart as a group of young professionals who aren’t afraid to take charge and take risks in their business. They are willing to try new things and put their ideas into action. To us, this is what it means to be a business leader, and we feel these 40 individuals embody that spirit.”

About 40 Under 40
Beginning in June each year, the Business Observer accepts nominations to begin its search for 40 Under 40 candidates. During the next three months, the paper’s editors sort through nominations and look for other individuals who represent the next generation of Gulf Coast business leaders. The special issue comes out in October, and is available in print and online at BusinessObserver4040.com.
