Fortune Announces Second Annual 40 Under 40 List

This morning, Fortune magazine released its second annual list of “40 under 40,” highlighting influential and successful names in business. The issue hits newsstands on October 18th, but here’s a little preview:

In a year that seemed to reward Steve Jobs, the Tea Party, and bond fund managers, you wouldn’t be blamed for thinking there aren’t too many other growth stories out there. But you’d be wrong. For our annual list of the most influential young people in business, we found 40  of them (48, actually; there were so many, we allowed some ties). They come from all corners of the economy:  from technology, yes, but also from retail, health care, academia, and finance. There are the names you know,  but with 27 newcomers, many you don’t. What they have in common: They’re innovating, they’re expanding, and they’re not really thinking about the recession (in fact, one of them works with the committee that decided it’s over).

Some names you might expect made this year’s list — like 26-year-old Facebook founder and, now, pop culture icon Mark Zuckerberg, who comes in at number 2, as well as Twitter’s Evan Williams, age 38, and Biz Stone, age 36, who tied for the number 3 spot. Rupert Murdoch’s 37-year-old son, James Murdoch, made the list at number 8.

And it’s not all suits (or, as the case may be for Zuckerberg, hoodies and Converse): 24-year-old Miami Heat player LeBron James, as much a brand as he is an athlete, made the number 20 spot. Some rising names among Latinos made the list as well, with Wal-Mart’s Raul Vazquez, age 39, coming in at number 4 and Cesar Conde, age 36, of Univision Networks taking the 12th spot. Wendy Clark, age 39, of Coca-Cola  is the highest-ranking woman to make the list, coming in at number 15.

Media Moguls Make Their Mark On Fortune‘s “40 Under 40″ List

jmurdoch.jpgFortune magazine has revealed its “40 Under 40″ list — a compilation of the youngest and the brightest minds in the business world. And we were pleased to see a number of media executives making the cut and ranking near the top. Our industry could use all the young blood and new ideas it can get right now.

Topping the list are Google’s Sergey Brin and Larry Page — tied for first. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is number two.

And coming in at number three is the first media mogul, News Corp. heir James Murdoch (above). Rupert Murdoch’s youngest son, James currently serves as chairman and CEO for News Corp.’s operations in Europe and Asia. Fun fact: he raised his desk so he can work standing up. So the key to rising to the top of an international media conglomerate by age 36 is never sitting down. We bet being the son of a media czar helps, too.
