Puget Sound “40 Under 40” Cover 360° of SeaTech

What do Rand Fishkin, Ben Elowitz, Ben Huh, Glenn Kelman, Jason Goldberg, Andy Sack, Anna Liotta, and Sujal Patel all have in common?

They have all been named one of  the top 40 rising young stars under 40 by the Puget Sound Business Journal.

The population of Puget Sound may be graying slighty at the temples, but the energy and initiative of “30 something” talent in our midst, those under 40 years of age, is making impact on the region’s economy and job creation.

Starting with a field of over 400 nominations across a plethora of  companies and vocations,  the Puget Sound Business Journal has once again selected its class of 40 honorees under 40 years of age for 2012

The Business Journal will profile each of these individuals in a special report within the Sept. 14 paper and congratulate them in person at a public awards ceremony at the Showbox Sodo on Sept. 20.
