Forty Under 40 is a prestigious honors program organized by Columbus Business First, a business news publication serving the Central Ohio area. Forty Under 40 honors 40 professionals in Central Ohio who are under the age of 40 and have distinguished themselves by their career achievements, awards and community service.

The longest-running program at Business First, Forty Under 40 marked its 21st year of recognizing young “movers and shakers” in the Central Ohio community.
 
The 2013 Class of Forty Under 40 includes business founders and executives, like Yogesh, as well as physicians, healthcare professionals, not-for-profit organization leaders, volunteers, attorneys, educators and public officials.
 
A panel of six judges reviewed approximately 200 nominations and support letters, scoring each nominee individually. The scores for each category, including career achievements, awards and community service, were combined for each nominee. The highest scores determined the Forty Under 40 Class of 2013.
 
“Only one in five people nominated were named to the list of Forty Under 40,” Don DePerro, President and Publisher of Columbus Business First, said.
