Please meet GPN’s Forty Under 40 Class of 2022!

Since we started GPN’s Forty Under 40 program back in 2012, we have identified 400 men and women who will be piloting our industry into the future. Now it is time to meet the next 40.

GPN’s Forty Under 40 program was created to shine the spotlight on the amazing young talent in our industry. Those individuals are shining bright and because of them the future of the horticulture industry is very bright!

The program has been immensely popular over the last decade. In fact, this year we had a record number of nominations.

Whittling the list down to 40 was an extremely challenging task for our judging panel — but we did it and I am extremely proud to introduce you to this year’s class.

Check out the Forty Under 40 guide and the May issue of GPN to learn more about the Class of 2022.
