MM+M has announced its 40 Under 40 Class of 2023. The program, which debuted in 2020, shines the spotlight on the young marketers who are set to lead the industry well into the future.

This year’s 40 Under 40 honorees stem from a broad range of organizations across the health and wellness spectrum, including pharma and biotech companies, device and diagnostic manufacturers, medical marketing agencies and health media firms. At those organizations, the 2023 honorees hold roles that encompass creative, strategy, accounts and more. 

“Among the many reasons the medical marketing business continues to thrive is the abundance of top-flight talent in its ranks. Other verticals are jealous, frankly,” said MM+M editor-in-chief Larry Dobrow. “While that makes the 40 Under 40 selection process a challenge, it’s one that we embrace. It’s a privilege to celebrate the individuals set to lead the business for years to come.”

The honorees will be celebrated at an event on February 16 in New York City.
