PRWeek is looking for the next generation of PR leaders in the US.

40 individuals will be chosen because they are redefining the role of communications, PR, and marketing. The experiences of the 40 PR pros hold up a mirror to an industry that is evolving fast in the areas of integration and social, digital, and content, while at the same time maintaining the traditional skills of senior counsel and trusted advice to the C-suite.

“The 40 Under 40 alumni from the past decade represent a who’s who of communications and many honorees have gone on to senior positions in the industry,” said Steve Barrett, VP, editorial director of PRWeek. "We are looking for qualities that reveal a lot about the skills required to prosper in today’s competitive and fast-changing environment.”
