ENR Southwest is pleased to name its 2021 class of Top Young Professionals. This annual awards program honors 20 individuals under 40 years of age in each of ENR’s 10 regions who have shown extraordinary leadership and service throughout their careers.

Firms from Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico submitted 34 entries into this year’s contest. These individuals were then judged by three primary criteria: industry experience and education; career and industry leadership; and community service and involvement.

We’d like to thank this year’s esteemed judging panel for all their efforts in identifying the honorees: Dana Aragon, workforce development director, AGC New Mexico; Ozzy Bravo, senior associate, Terracon Consultants Inc.; Ali Fakih, principal, Sustainability Engineering Group (SEG); Erica Lange, vice president, Arizona Builders Alliance; Lindsey Schultz, office leader/structural engineer, Meyer Borgman Johnson; and Milos Vasiljevic, program manager, HDR.
