September 22nd, 2012 - Houston, TX
(Houston, TX 2012) Whether they founded their own technology company or work in the age-old profession of law, HBJ's 40 Under 40 Class of 2012 are all entrepreneurs in their own right. They have blazed trails with their innovation and passion in industries ranging from the arts to energy to health care.
Now in its fourth year, the 40 Under 40 designation honors Houston business people who contribute to their industries and community in an impressive way. Of the 200 applicants, the judges selected 40 individuals who stood out for their accomplishments and the impact they are making in the Houston community.
The judging panel consisted of Wendy Daboval, general counsel and vice president of Chevron North America Exploration and Production; Mark Madrid, 40 Under 40 alum and senior director of business development for the Houston Hispanic Chamber of Commerce; B. Candace Beeke, editor of HBJ; and Emily Wilkinson, assistant managing editor of HBJ.
The Class of 2012 is as diverse as Houston and well represents the Bayou City's culture. While it includes several countries and heritages, many also are native Houstonians, with talents that span a wide range — from startups to corporate America.
This year, HBJ held a photo shoot for the 40 Under 40 at The Marque, a new extension of the Houston Motor Club at CityCentre. Photographer Eric Kayne used the impressive space to capture stunning group photos of the 40. Click here to see all the pictures and learn more about Reginald C.
