40 Leaders Under Forty

Twenty-seven years ago, a new initiative was created to recognize the rising young stars of central Illinois. One of the first programs of its kind in the country, 40 Leaders Under Forty has been a local tradition ever since—a rite of passage for Greater Peoria’s emerging leaders.

They come from many different walks of life, but are united in passion for their community. Their talent, integrity, creativity and work ethic are second to none. Day in and day out, their dedication, vision and volunteerism are making our region a better place to live, work and play.

On behalf of Peoria Magazine, Caterpillar Inc. and the rest of our sponsors—RLI, OSF HealthCare, Farnsworth Group, Cullinan Properties, Hometown Community Banks, Community Foundation of Central Illinois, Adams Outdoor, and UnityPoint Health – Central Illinois Foundation—we are proud to present the 2020 class of 40 Leaders Under Forty.
