"This year's 40 Under 40 are making Sacramento a more compassionate and welcoming place to live. They volunteer their time, expertise and money to support programs and initiatives that benefit worth causes and people in need," wrote Sam Boykin, managing editor of the Sacramento Business Journal. "It's exciting to see this kind of passion and fortitude. The folks highlighted in this issue are not satisfied with just being a part of the Sacramento business community. They are working hard to improve an already thriving city and lead it into the future." An event honoring this year's 40 Under 40 was held on Nov. 15 in Sacramento. For more information see
