Forty Under 40

Pro Builder's annual class of Forty Under 40 recognizes home building's brightest young talent and next-generation leaders and innovators.

With a wide range of achievements, this year’s Under 40 rising stars are pushing the boundaries both of personal and professional accomplishment, tapping a range of skills, as well as knowledge, grit, ingenuity, adaptability, a keen understanding of business, and both self-awareness and team-building abilities.

In choosing our Forty Under 40 honorees, we look for certain qualities and characteristics in applicants: leadership skills, inventiveness, training, technical skills, dedication, interpersonal skills, personal integrity, and industry and community involvement.

Often the change agents in their companies, these successful young industry leaders show the way forward for home building. It turns out, it’s a bright future!
