Meet the Judges

Every two years, DCI invites nominations from young professionals working in the economic development industry from all over the world for our 40 Under 40 awards. To sort through the hundreds of submissions that DCI receives each nomination period, DCI and Jorgenson Consulting compile a group of past 40 Under 40 winners, entrepreneurs and seasoned economic development professionals to hand-select the 40 they believe are deserving of the award. The group spends hours reading each nomination and ranks the candidates based on their impact on their community, their organization and the industry itself.
