JOHNSTOWN — BizWest on Wednesday announced the 2016 honorees for its annual Northern Colorado 40 Under Forty program, which recognizes top young professionals from across Larimer and Weld counties.
This year’s winners will be honored at a Nov. 2 reception at the Candlelight Dinner Playhouse, 4747 Marketplace Drive, in Johnstown. Check-in and networking begin at 5 p.m., with the awards ceremony running from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Early-bird tickets can be purchased online for $49 through Oct. 25, with the price increasing to $59 after that.
The 40 Under Forty event aims to honor those who represent the best and brightest of emerging leaders that make a difference in their companies, industries and the community’s future. The business community submits nominations, and a committee comprised of alumni then selects the honorees. BizWest hosts a similar event for the Boulder Valley earlier in the calendar year.
