The votes are in and the winners of this year’s 20 Under 40 competition span an array of industry sectors across the tristate region. Collectively, the group represents work on some of the region’s major projects.

The winners include a project manager with more than 15 years in managing, designing and building transportation projects; an urban planner who leads her firm’s energy and sustainability practice; and an advocate skilled at advising on construction industry issues. Our independent panel of judges reviewed 44 candidates in all but chose just 20 whom they see as the highest achievers.
