When Worcester Business Journal 23 years ago first considered creating a 40 Under Forty award, the concern at the time was whether Central Massachusetts had enough high-quality young professionals to make the effort worthwhile and if that process of selecting the best and the brightest would be repeatable year and year.
Looking at the 40 Under Forty, Class of 2022, that concept is just plain laughable.
Central Massachusetts is brimming with young talent, as scores of people have achieved much in a relatively short period of time, while scores more have the potential to do great things. At its heart, this is what the 40 Under Forty is all about: showcasing people who’ve had early success in their careers and hold the promise of having an even bigger impact. Occasionally, that potential is squandered, but more often than not, it is realized toward the collective good of the economy and community.
