Wednesday, March 11, 2020 | 40 Under Forty


When we began this celebratory event five years ago, we wanted to recognize the outstanding young leaders who are movers and shakers in our community and leading us into the future. Year after year, what our awardees accomplish at their profession and in our community is nothing short of awe-inspiring, and this year’s class is no exception. Selected from more than 235 nominations, this year’s 40 Under Forty class consists of an array of roles and industries—from entrepreneurs to educators, public servants to small business owners. While their professions and pursuits vary, they are all working towards a shared goal: improving the quality of life for those living and working in the Berkshires.

We are able to honor these exceptional individuals thanks in part to our sponsors—LENCO Armored Vehicles, Berkshire Bank, General Dynamics Mission Systems and Greylock Federal Credit Union, and the many judges, sponsors, supporters and advertisers. A special thank you goes to the Holiday Inn and Suites-Berkshires for hosting the soiree where we honor these leaders and innovators, and to 1Berkshire and the Berkshire Eagle for being our partners in honoring rising business and community leaders

In the following pages, our awardees share—in their words—how they are making a positive impact on our community. I know their profiles will enlighten, educate, and inspire you, as they did for me. There is no doubt that our region is in good hands as we look to the future.
