The Network Journal, a premier magazine for Black professionals, corporate executives and small business owners, announces the winners of its much anticipated 2012 “40 Under Forty” Achievers Awards, which recognizes achievers who are continuously reaching for higher goals in their professions, businesses and community involvement.
This year’s class of honorees hails from a diverse range of industries, including media, technology, arts, culture, finance, and healthcare. TNJ will honor them on Thursday, June 28, 2012, at its 15th Annual 40 Under Forty Achievers Awards Dinner, to be hosted by 2010 awardee Karen Nethersole, Esq., CEO of Full Circle NY, and Roman Oben, former NY Giants & 2003 Super Bowl XXXVII Champion.
TNJ created the 40 Under Forty Achievers Awards in 1997 to publicly recognize the next generation of African-American leaders who already are exceptional performers in their respective industries, and who are committed to the development of their community. Competition for the awards has become increasingly intense, with the number of entries growing exponentially each year and the achievements of the entrants more and more remarkable. It is almost presumptuous to choose winners, for clearly there are no losers among these candidates. TNJ salutes them all – both those who made the honoree list and those who did not.
