40 Under Forty Award

40_Under_Forty-Minneapolis_StPaul_Business_Journal-Cover-Thumbnail.jpgI got the exciting news a couple of weeks ago that I was selected to be one of the recipients of the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal‘s 40 Under Forty awards. The process to be selected involves a nomination process. The editors receive letters from people and then sift through those to figure out who to pick. My sincerest thanks to Dan Grigsby who threw my name into the ring first, as well as everyone else who suggested me for this award. Lastly, thanks to John Riedl for taking the great quotes. Thank you!

The Business Journal has been doing this award for at least 11 years now (2006 Winners, 2007 Winners). Dan Grigsby is also a winner this year. Looking in the past years I see Andrew Eklund of Ciceron. Going all the way back to 1999 shows my friend and founder of BigCharts, Philip Hotchkiss. It’s great to join such company.

This is a great way to cap off the last decade as I transition into the next chapter. A cherry on the top if you will.


There is a dinner tonight at the Minneapolis Club for this event. Looking forward to meeting everyone else!

    Congratulations! What a great award. More tears of joy for this Grandma. And of coarse more bragging at Seniors. Love Grandma

  5. Nice job Jamie, you are well-deserving of this honor! I’m glad we have a techie like you in the family.

  6. Congratulations!!! Sounds like it was a great night! Todd Noteboom, one of the litigators from the firm also got an award. How exciting! Good job, proud to say you are my brother, always have been!

  7. Very cool, Jamie. Has Robin Williams sent you his congratulations yet?

  8. @Marilee,

    I’ve been waiting by the phone — but so far no call. :-)
