ENR Southeast is proud to announce its 2014 class of honorees for ENR's Top 20 Under 40 program.

As always, this year's recipients were chosen by an independent panel of judges, who reviewed more than 60 entries submitted to our online system. Our judges included: Ken Cristol, president of Cristol Marketing Co., Longwood, Fla.; Janet Puglisi, with KHS&S Contractors, Tampa; and an honoree from a year ago, David Evans, a senior director with Starr Electric Co., Raleigh, N.C.

ENR Southeast will showcase this year's class in the upcoming January print edition. For now, here is an alphabetical list of the latest Top 20 Under 40 class. Congratulations to all!
