DALLAS — It's that time of year again: Our partners at the Dallas Business Journal have announced the winners of their annual "40 Under 40" list.

You can read the full list over at the DBJ's website, but first, here's what they had to say about the selection process:

The Dallas Business Journal is pleased to announce the honorees for its 2019 40 Under 40 Awards.

After vetting several hundred nominations for the annual program, judges selected 40 leaders that are making an impression in North Texas. The judging panel, comprised of 40 Under 40 alumni, span a variety of industries and roles at private, public and non-profit organizations and evaluate nominations over the course of several weeks.

Honorees of the 2019 40 Under 40 Awards guide companies and nonprofits that represent businesses from a variety of sizes and stages — a reflection of the diversity of industry and entrepreneurship that comprises North Texas' business community.

Young leaders that have a hand in the food and beverage space stand out in this year's class, like Sarah Shadonix of Scout & Cellar, Kate Weiser of Kate Weiser Chocolate, John Reardon of Deep Ellum Brewing Co., Adam Saxton of The Saxton Group, Ron Parikh of Chalak Mitra Group, and Becca May of Nature Nate's Honey Co.

The 2019 40 Under 40 honorees will be highlighted at an awards event on the evening of Thursday, March 21. For more information on that awards event, click here.
