The search is on for the 45 most stylish, successful and influential men in Las Vegas. The “45 Under 45 Men That Matter” poll was created last year by Elliot & Co. barber lounge owner Elliott Chester and is presented in conjunction with Esquire. The event was designed to celebrate Las Vegas men who are leaders in both their industry and their community, and last year honored Al G. Gourrier (president of First Commerce Bank), Alex Berejnoi (executive with Station Casinos) and Alex Cordova (vice president of marketing for Angel Management Group).
The annual contest kicked off its 2010 edition on July 22 with a cocktail reception at Nu Sanctuary that benefited Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Nevada. The inaugural 45 Under 45 were selected by the event organizers, but this year the public is being asked to suggest and vote for candidates—or themselves—online at 45under 45.com. Voting continues though Sept. 30, and winners will be announced in November.
