design:retail Announces the 2019 40 Under 40 Honorees

design:retail’s fifth-annual 40 Under 40 list has been unveiled, revealing the 2019 class of the retail design industry’s top young professionals and up-and-coming future leaders. All 40 of the industry professionals that made the list were nominated by peers—colleagues, clients, vendors, bosses and even a few direct reports—who submitted enough praise for these outstanding individuals to catch the attention of design:retail’s editors. The list represents a mix of retailers, designers, architects, manufacturers, brand managers, entrepreneurs and innovators.

design:retail’s 40 Under 40 honorees will be profiled in the May issue of the magazine. They will also be celebrated and handed their award in person at design:retail HONORS, taking place 6:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m. on Monday, May 20 at The Gallery at Dream Downtown, during New York Market Week Spring (May 20-22).
