FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Jan. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cemtrex (NASDAQ: CETX), a diversified industrial and manufacturing leader, announced today that its Chairman and CEO was recently selected by Forbes as one of its "30 Under 30." The list represents Forbes' selection of the brightest young entrepreneurs, breakout talents, and change agents in 20 different sectors.
Forbes initially screened over 15,000 candidates representing the best of the best, to ultimately reach their stringent selection of outstanding individuals who were recognized under the 2016 30 Under 30. According to Caroline Howard of the publication, "In the past, youth was a handicap to professional success. Getting older meant more resources, more knowledge, more money. No more. Those who grew up in the tech age have way bigger ambitions — perfectly suited to the dynamic, entrepreneurial and impatient digital world they grew up in. If you want to change the world, being under 30 is now an advantage."
Some names on this year's list include recognizable names: NBA champ Stephen Curry, Star Wars: The Force Awakens leading man John Boyega, plus-sized supermodel Ashley Graham, Canadian crooner Shawn Mendes and YouTube gamer CaptainSparklez (Jordan Maron). Notable 30 Under 30 Alumni from previous years include influential people like Adele and Mark Zuckerberg.
Cemtrex's CEO, Saagar Govil, commented, "I am honored and humbled to be recognized and associated with such an elite group of successful and innovative individuals. The people on this list have accomplished a tremendous amount in their brief careers and some of the alumni from past years are global leaders in their industries now only a few years later. Cemtrex has achieved strong success the last few years, being one of the fast growing industrial companies over the last 5 years in terms of revenue. Our goal is to continue that trend upward and keep building toward greater heights."
