Young stars shine bright

40u40 Group

Georgia Trend’s 40 Under 40 event at the beautiful Georgia Aquarium was a joyous celebration of the state’s rising stars under the age of 40. These inspiring young leaders were chosen from more than 300 nominations and represent government, small and large businesses, nonprofits, education, healthcare, banking and professional sports.

In her keynote address, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms recalled her own under-40 self. She encouraged the honorees not to be afraid of failure, and to be bold in their actions.
