FRESNO – It was an exciting and memorable night for the “40 Under 40” Class of 2012 as their families, friends, colleagues and other guests packed the Skyroom Lounge in the Holiday Inn Fresno Downtown last night for “40 Under 40” The Ultimate Networking Event.

General manager of the Holiday Inn Fresno Downtown Siddharth Shah, Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin, and president and publisher of Business Street Online Lance Cardoza take a moment to pause on the red carpet following “40 Under 40” The Ultimate Networking Event. The event packed the hotel’s Skyroom Lounge Thursday evening with Class of 2012 honorees and many other guests.

This year Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin, a member of the Class of 2008, spent time honoring as well as conversing with many people in attendance.  She pointed out that the Class of 2012 are not just rising stars in central California, she commends them for what they are doing with their lives today.

“You are our leaders now,” Mayor Swearengin said.  “This is not a future thing, you are our leaders today.  When I consider the young and capable talent that Fresno has to offer, I know that our community is on the right track.”

Lance Cardoza, president and publisher of Business Street Online, which has presented the event for the past six years, said he can’t wait to see who makes the “40 Under 40” Class of 2013 list.

“Every year we get more nominations for this event, and ever year it gets harder to decide who makes the cut,” Cardoza said.  “We applaud the Class of 2012, and wish them even greater success in their futures.”
