Cardwell Named to ENR Texas & Louisiana
Top Young Professionals for 2017
After weeks of review, an independent panel of judges has selected ENR Texas & Louisiana’s Top Young Professionals for 2017. Formerly our Top 20 Under 40, this revised program honors a max of 20 honorees in each region, and limits the number of winners from a specific firm at three and no more than two honorees from one office. Submissions were only accepted from entrants aged 40 and younger.
Firms from across the region submitted approximately 50 entries into this year’s contest—from Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas. These individuals are then judged by three primary criteria: industry experience and education; career and industry leadership; and community service and involvement.
We’d like to thank our esteemed judging panel who reviewed every entry submitted and abstained from voting when any conflicts of interest arose. This year’s panel included: Brad Brown, President, Austin Commercial; Jing Johnson, President, Prism Renderings; and Jennifer Woodruff, Director of Marketing, Associated Builders & Contractors of Greater Houston.
Below, we’ve listed the 2017 Texas & Louisiana Top Young Professionals (in alphabetical order by last name). Please be sure to read more about these rising young professionals in the February 13 issue of ENR Texas & Louisiana. Congratulations to our winners!
