Selected to Forty Under 40 class in 2005

 

What do you remember most about being named to Forty Under 40?

When you are relatively young in your career, there are very few awards that give you a sense of perspective of how you rank within the sports industry. SBJ’s Forty Under 40 tells the industry that you are someone to watch.

 

What does being selected for Forty Under 40 mean for professional development of young executives?

The award gives you a sense of camaraderie with your standout peers. I have stayed in touch with folks from other networks I met that night. We have a bond!

 

Are there any other thoughts/memories about Forty Under 40 that you would like to share?

NBC Sports surprised me by inviting my parents to the NYC reception. It was a wonderful night that those closest to me were able to enjoy alongside me. We’ve never had another night quite like that, a mix of personal and professional.
