Forty Under 40: Class of 2011

Forty under Forty LogoWelcome to the 19th annual Forty Under 40, one of Indianapolis Business Journal's most popular and talked-about features.

With the explosion in social media, smart phones and notepads, the movers and shakers in central Indiana’s business community are connected and accessible like never before. From hundreds of candidates, IBJ has chosen 40 budding superstars who log more than the typical share of e-mails, blog posts, Facebook “Likes” and late-night business calls.

We asked each of these high-achievers to sit for video interviews and reveal their goals, challenges and how the prospect of 24-hour availability has affected their lives, for better or worse.

Criteria included the level of success nominees have achieved in their chosen field, their accomplishments in the community and the likelihood that they will stay in Indianapolis and build on those achievements.
