Denver Business Journal Recognizes VS Partner Shawn Hauser in 26th Annual '40 Under 40' List

DENVER — Vicente Sederberg partner Shawn Hauser earned a spot on the Denver Business Journal’s 26th annual “40 under 40” list. Each year, the recognition is given to 40 individuals under 40 years of age who are entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, chief executives and all-around movers and shakers from a wide range of industries.

“This is a special recognition, as these individuals represent a promising next generation of Denver leaders,” according to the publication. “To call them up-and-comers wouldn’t be exactly right, as they’ve already accomplished so much. They’re entrepreneurs, executives, nonprofit champions and thought leaders, but their best days in the community are likely ahead of them.”
