Seward man named to Top Forty Under 40 awards


Joseph Tougas, 30 of Seward, was named to the Alaska Journal of Commerce Top Forty Under 40 awards last week. Tougas is the owner and president of Catalyst Marine Engineering in Seward.

“We have a tremendous class once again representing the best of Alaska from the private, public and nonprofit sectors featuring diverse backgrounds around the state,” said Journal Managing Editor Andrew Jensen. “It’s an honor to recognize the people who will be leading influences in the future of Alaska.”

The group was selected by Journal management out of nearly 130 nominations with members from Anchorage, Dillingham, Fairbanks, Kodiak, Kotzebue, Juneau, Kenai, Seward and North Pole.

“Once again we had an impressive group of Forty Under 40 nominees,” said Alaska Journal of Commerce Publisher Rona Johnson. “And, as always, it was tough to choose only 40 nominees from the many that we received.”

The Top Forty Under 40 recipients will be recognized in a special publication by the Alaska Journal of Commerce and during an awards reception and dinner beginning at 6 p.m. on April 8 at the Hotel Captain Cook. Tickets are available by contacting Michelle Ditmore at 907- 275-2178 or
