The list this year’s SGB 40 Under 40 honorees have been announced, and among those recognized is Sanuk Brand President Jake Brandman. Here’s more on the award and the other winners:

The SportsOneSource Group has announced the honorees for the fifth annual SGB 40 Under 40 Awards. This year's list again contains individuals from all corners of the sporting good industry who are recognized as leaders making a difference in their businesses and the market. The forty recipients were selected by a panel of SportsOneSource analysts, editors and industry executives from more than 450 nominations received from around the sporting goods industry. 

“These awards are a way to recognize the great work done by younger leaders in our industry,” said James Hartford, president, CEO of The SportsOneSource Group, which publishes the SGB trade publication. “The extraordinary and diverse talent nominated again this year made it difficult to narrow the list to just forty people. We drew very strong support from prior honorees and other industry leaders to select a prestigious group of individuals and it is our pleasure to honor the next generation of leaders.”
