Jennifer Lyday Selected as a Member of the ABI’s 2021 Class of “40 Under 40!”

Oct 08, 2021

The American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) recently announced the honorees of its 2021 Class of “40 Under 40” initiative, and Jennifer Lyday, Partner at Waldrep Wall Babcock & Bailey PLLC, was among the ones chosen!

ABI’s “40 Under 40” program recognizes emerging leaders in the insolvency profession who are committed to the highest standards of achievement at work and in their communities. More than 200 candidates, each with outstanding records of professional achievement and community leadership, were evaluated by 20 judges.

“The 2021 honorees are a testament to the future of the insolvency profession, with exemplary accomplishments in both their careers and communities,” said ABI Executive Director Amy Quackenboss. “We look forward to this diverse collection of young leaders propelling ABI's full range of activities forward to advance the profession.”

Honorees were chosen from both large and small firms from every region of the country, and represent diverse practice areas such as law, finance, consulting, academia, government and more. The age range of this year’s class is between 33 and 40 years old, with 24 of the honorees having applied previously to ABI’s “40 under 40” initiative. Sixteen members of the 2021 “40 under 40” class are female and 24 are male, and 8 of the honorees are people of color. One honoree is located in Singapore, and one is located in the Cayman Islands.

The goal of ABI’s “40 under 40” initiative is not simply to create a one-time ceremony, but to fully engage those selected as future leaders in the insolvency profession and to build on the initiative each year. ABI staff have created a year-round promotional campaign in the ABI Journal and at all of its CLE programs in consultation with the steering committee.

The honorees will be recognized at the ABI’s Winter Leadership Conference, December 9-11, at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

Congratulations, Jennifer!
