2019 Top Forty Under 40 announced

The Alaska Journal of Commerce announced the members of our 2019 Top Forty Under 40 on Feb. 1.

This year’s selection committee chose the class from the largest group ever nominated: 152 individuals and nearly 800 total pages of supporting materials.

“Choosing the Top Forty class is always a tough task, and Alaskans didn’t make it any easier this year,” said Journal Managing Editor Andrew Jensen. “We’re happy to have representation from the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska’s Gateway City in Ketchikan, Southcentral, the Interior and members from Northwest Alaska who call Nome and Kotzebue home.”

The 2019 Top Forty Under 40 will be honored at an awards dinner on March 29 at the Hotel Captain Cook in Anchorage. A cocktail reception will begin at 6 p.m. with the dinner and award event starting at 7 p.m.
