While it can take nearly a lifetime for some to reach a successful pinnacle, for 14 years the Idaho Business Review has been recognizing 40 accomplished men and women younger than 40.

“These are talented young professionals. They are shaping our state, our image and our expectations,” said IBR President and Publisher Sean Evans.

This year, 129 were nominated, and 65 completed the application process. A six-member selection panel of past Accomplished Under 40 recipients scored the applicants on a 1-to-5 scale in four categories: professional accomplishments, leadership skills, community involvement and long-term goals. The 40 with the highest total scores are this year’s honorees.

Wendy Couture, a member of the 2012 class of Accomplished Under 40, happily acknowledges the number. She said in her profile: “I used to think 40 sounded old. Now, I think it sounds young. I’m happy to have my accomplishments recognized at this stage in my life, and I hope I have a long career ahead of me.”

The 2013 Accomplished Under 40 magazine will be published with the June 14 issue of Idaho Business Review. The event – networking reception, dinner and awards ceremony – will be held at the Knitting Factory June 13. For tickets, visit idahobusinessreview.com/events/au40/.
