Each year we have difficult choices to make.

While a committee of previous 40 Under 40 winners select the annual honorees, we at the Wichita Business Journal choose the people who are added to the list of 40 Under 40 Hall of Fame honorees.

So far a dozen 40 Under 40 hall of famers have been chosen, four per year in 2014, 2015 and 2016. They’re featured in the attached photo gallery.

As you check out the photos of the hall of famers, think about who should be nominated for the 2017 honors and let us know. You can email me at [email protected], DM me on Twitter, @ICTBiz_BRoy or leave a comment on Facebook.

We are also taking nominations for the 2017 40 Under 40 honors. If you have someone in mind please nominate them here. And check out the class of 2016 in the related content section on the left.

Bill Roy is the editor of the WBJ.
