Editor’s Note

I am very excited to announce this year’s Top 10 Under 40 Winners! We had a record number of nominations which made the judges’ work difficult. Siouxland is fortunate to have so many kind and talented young professionals. After much deliberation, they arrived at their decision.

Now to introduce our 2023 Winners…

  • Andrew Gerodias
  • Sarah Gill
  • Korey Kletschke
  • Jessica Martinez
  • Sydney McManamy
  • Chrystal Mollet
  • Andrew Nilges
  • Karina Pedroza
  • Ivonet Torres De Anda
  • Aaron Van Beek

These individuals put so much heart into their work and passion projects. We want to take this time to applaud them, but even more, to support their efforts. Let’s do our part to keep the momentum rolling. In the following pages, you'll find out how you can get involved. I encourage you to reach out to them, and share your thoughts and ideas. Is there an introduction you can make or resources you can provide? Every little bit helps. Also, consider sharing their Facebook posts that will pop up over the next few weeks, to help them and the work they are doing, get even more exposure.

The conversations around town continue to circle around how we can keep young professionals in Siouxland. This is it. Give them your support.

Congratulations to this year’s winners!

Finally, Siouxland Magazine is excited to announce that we will be hosting the John Maxwell Live2Lead event on October 19th, bringing exceptional leadership development to our community. It is up to each of us to continue investing in our own growth and then bring someone up alongside us. We can’t give what we don’t have. Do this for yourself! Do this for others! I hope you’ll join us!
