Crain’s NY Names ’40 Under 40′

Forty impressive people.

40-under-40-2015-logoCrain’s New York has unveiled its annual “40 Under 40” list, which highlights “The most talented, driven and dynamic professionals under the age of 40 who are working in New York City today.”

The most notable media person to make the list was Bloomberg Media chief digital content officer Joshua Topolsky:

A former DJ, the Pittsburgh native was named editor of techie webzine Engadget in 2008, putting him at the center of the schism between old and new media. In 2011, he co-founded The Verge, a tech-news website that launched with 4 million unique viewers—and had gained an additional 10 million by 2014, when its parent company, Vox Media, was valued at more than $200 million. That success caught the attention of Bloomberg Media CEO Justin Smith, who hired Mr. Topolsky last summer to bring his multiplatform news model to the company.
