40 Under 40: Where are They Now?
Catching up with 2013 honoree Byron Donalds
When Byron Donalds was named a 40-under-40 honoree in 2013, he was director of Policy Management Operations at CMG Life Services in Naples. He ran—unsuccessfully—for Congress, but in the 2012 Republican primary, won the highest percentage of the vote in Collier County of six candidates. Today, a financial advisor with Wells Fargo Advisors, he is a Florida state representative serving house District 80, which encompasses parts of Collier and Hendry counties. He and his wife, Erika (also a past 40-under-40 winner), have three children: Damon, 13; Darin, 9; and Mason, 5. “Being named to 40 under 40 helped me realize the talent I had to be a leader in our community,” Donalds says.
