Last month we asked for your help identifying the future leaders in the A/E/C industry, and to nominate those who you believe currently excel in their careers. You responded, and our independent panel of judges have picked the winners. These individuals will be featured in the next issue of ENR Texas & Louisiana, our newest and first issue as a McGraw-Hill Construction regional publication in 2011. The magazine will be a regular edition to Engineering-News Record magazine, publishing six times a year and going to ENR subscribers in our region. We are excited about the new design, departments and project features, and think you will be, too.

Until then, we'd like to announce the winners of the "20 Under 40" feature. Each winner takes his her her place in a group that collectively represents the best young professionals you nominated. There were nearly three times as many names submitted. Sincerest congratulations are in order to the following: 

  1. Carlo Silvestri, Wier & Associates Inc., Arlington
  2. Peter Narvarte, Flintco LLC, Austin
