If you are ever feeling uncertain about New Mexico’s future, just look at the latest 40 Under 40 class. It is guaranteed to brighten your outlook.

Each year, Albuquerque Business First recognizes outstanding young individuals via its 40 Under 40 Awards. This accolade is intended to highlight people who not only go above and beyond in their careers, but for their communities.

After a call for nominations from the public, Business First then asked nominees to complete an application. A panel of judges — all previous 40 Under 40 Awards recipients — were assembled to review the applications and compile this year’s class.

The 2023 judges included:

  • Nadine Buerger, executive director, US Eagle Foundation
  • Matt Loehman, executive director, Horizons of New Mexico
  • Kevin Zhou, co-founder/COO, Selflane

Each of the 40 Under 40 Awards recipients will be celebrated at a ceremony on May 31 at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa. For more information, click here. A special section showcasing their contributions to New Mexico will be featured in the June 2 print edition of Business First.

The 40 Under 40 Awards are sponsored by Nusenda Credit Union.
