Billboard's 2013 40 Under 40: Full List Revealed!

The decision in 2012 to expand our long-running Power Players special feature 30 Under 30 with a revised age criteria has allowed us to highlight the achievements of a greater number of established executives who, nonetheless, are still at a relatively early stage in their careers.

The change had another result; a surge in reader nominations when the call when out this spring on billboard.biz. With the added exposure of this project on Twitter, we received well over 400 reader suggestions for execs to recognize.

Billboard editors then set about reviewing those nominations in detail, a process lasting several weeks. From those nominations, we chose the executives for the 40 slots on this list. As always, we recognize that we could easily print a list of scores of accomplished young executives in our industry. But this year’s selection represents the collective judgment of Billboard’s editors.

We congratulate all those nominated for this year's 40 Under 40 list, a promising sign of the depth of young executive talent in the music business. – Thom Duffy
