Traverse City News and Events

Introducing The 2022 40Under40

Sept. 1, 2022

Every September, the Traverse City Business News spotlights 40 local professionals under age 40 who excel with their economic impact on the region and in the community. This year marks the 16th anniversary of the annual 40Under40 list of influencers, and the seventh year Hagerty has been the signature sponsor. 

The 2022 class is comprised of 22 women and 18 men. More than half are new to the list. Pictured above are Abagail McKiernan, Edith Elliott, Jody Trietch and Christina Barkel.

A panel of judges reviewed the submissions and chose the 40 influencers out of 100-plus nominations from the community. The panel included Karin Chung, senior recruiter and internship coordinator at Hagerty; Damian Lockhart, first vice president/financial advisor, Morgan Stanley Wealth Management Traverse City; Benjamin Marentette, Traverse City clerk and past 40Under40 recipient; Warren Call, president/CEO of Traverse Connect and past 40Under40 recipient; Luke Haase, publisher of the TCBN, Northern Express and The Ticker; Jillian Manning, executive editor of Northern Express; and Gayle Neu, contributing editor of the TCBN.

At an upcoming evening reception, winners will be celebrated and will receive complimentary "swag bags" containing donated gifts from Cherry Republic, Cultured Kombucha, Crystal Mountain, Fustini’s, Grand Traverse Resort & Casinos, Hagerty, Higher Grounds Coffee, Honor Bank, Jacob’s Farm, Jimmy Johns, Mawby and Oryana. This year, winners will also be invited to participate in ongoing quarterly professional development, networking, and community-building events. 

Congrats to the 2022 40Under40!
