Alumni receive ‘Forty Under 40’ honor from Cincinnati Business Courier

Fourteen outstanding alumni of the University of Cincinnati have been selected by the Cincinnati Business Courier for its prestigious “Forty Under 40” Class of 2023. In its 28th year, the annual recognition spotlights Greater Cincinnati’s top young professionals from a range of fields — the business community, the public sector, nonprofits, and cultural/arts organizations. The Cincinnati Business Courier will host a Sept. 28 celebration in their honor.

“These accomplished Bearcats are a shining example of UC’s excellence in preparing its graduates for success,” said UC Chief Alumni Officer Jennifer Heisey. “Individually and collectively, they are Boldly Defining Next.”
