Please join us in celebrating the best and brightest stars in secured finance. You can meet our 2021 winners here.

On September 9, 2021, we will recognize the rising stars in the secured finance industry at SFNet’s prestigious 40 Under 40 Awards celebration. We will honor the 2021 winners as well as acknowledging our 2020 class with a high-energy, engaging virtual ceremony.

Arrive early and network with your peers on our SFNet Connect platform. The program will begin promptly at 4:30 p.m. EDT and will wrap up in an hour. This year’s event will include a special presentation by Robyn Benincasa. Our speaker will be followed by our recognition ceremony.

If you are comfortable with in-person gatherings, we encourage our member companies to host viewing parties. We’ll even supply decor to help you applaud your honoree.

In 2022 we’ll be back at the Plaza Hotel, NYC.

Keynote Speaker Robyn Benincasa

Robyn Benincasa SFNet 40 Under 40 AwardsTop Leadership and Teamwork Motivational Speaker, Adventure Racing World Champion, CNN Hero, and Bestselling Author

Robyn Benincasa is the founder of World Class Teams, a world champion adventure racer, a CNN Hero, former corporate sales expert and a full-time firefighter who advises organizations on building World Class Teams of their own. With a background in marketing, she was previously in corporate sales with Baxter and Allergan and is currently a full-time firefighter. World Champion Eco-Challenge Adventure Racer, CNN Hero, Founder of the Project Athena Foundation (Survivors to Athletes!), 3x Guinness World Record Distance Paddler and proud owner of 2 metal ‘bionic hips’, Robyn definitely knows a thing or two about creating Human Synergy – “that magic that allows groups of ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things together.” Her New York Times best-selling book How Winning Works, published by Harlequin has been reviewed as “an excellent resource for all business owners on approaching challenges with a team mentality.”

It is through her harrowing, life affirming and often hilarious experiences in the world’s most grueling challenges that she has emerged with her refreshing and truly unique perspective on what it takes to build the kind of World Class Teams that succeed against all odds, that triumph in the face of adversity and that win as one in times of great challenge and change. Whether you’re trying to beat the competition to market, scale a looming mountain of a project or simply get your team all marching in the same direction, Robyn’s 8 Essential Elements of Human Synergy will coach you to the finish line of success.

NBC, ABC, CNN, ESPN, USA Network, The Today Show, Live With Regis, Dateline NBC, The Discovery Channel, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Runners World and Outside Magazine have all featured Robyn and her teams’ amazing accomplishments. And Robyn accepts full blame for inspiring people to do insane things like climb Mount Kilimanjaro, run their first triathlon, start their own adventure racing teams, hike across the Grand Canyon with a group of Survivors, or start their own businesses.
