Southeast Construction recently conducted a "Top 20 Under 40" program aimed at determining some of the Southeast A/E/C industry's best and brightest up-and-coming leaders.

Anyone working in the four-state A/E/C industry that was under the age of 40 was eligible for nomination. After receiving the entries, the submissions were then sent to an independent panel of judges for scoring.

Below is our inaugural "Top 20 Under 40." All 20 will be highlighted in the January issue of ENR Southeast - coming your way soon!
