40 Under 40

This year marks the eagerly anticipated return of the Flint & Genesee Group’s 40 Under 40 awards. This biannual program celebrates the region’s brightest young talents who are excelling professionally and making a significant impact within our community.

The 40 honorees – all under the age of 40 – will be publicly recognized as exceptional leaders through published profiles in the September-October edition of AND, the region’s bimonthly business magazine. News will also be shared in the Group’s social media channels and email newsletters, and with the local media.

To be eligible, nominees must:

  • Be 39 years or younger as of December 31, 2024.
  • Spend the majority of their work time in Flint & Genesee and/or work remotely for an employer headquartered in Genesee County.
    • Or, if employed outside of Genesee County, must hold a leadership position in a local community organization and be a resident of Flint & Genesee.
  • Be an owner, executive, manager, professional, or person with significant influence.

Additionally, self-nominators must provide a letter of support from their president/CEO or direct supervisor or, if self-employed, a professional reference or client.

Please note:

  • Honorees from the 2022 cohort are not eligible to participate in the 2024 recognition program.
  • Multiple nominations on behalf of an individual are not necessary, nor will an honoree be selected on the basis of a popular vote tally. Selections will be based on the quality of the nomination, not the quantity of forms received.
  • Nominations open April 29 and are due via online submission to the Flint & Genesee Group by 5 p.m., Friday, June 7, 2024.

Nominations are now closed. Honorees will be revealed in the September/October 2024 issue of AND magazine.
