Congratulations to the outstanding honorees who comprise the Class of 2009 – the 10th annual selection of San Diego’s finest business people. Recognizing the achievements of these young business and civic leaders in whose hands lie our region’s future is a task we do not take lightly here at San Diego Metropolitan. And it’s one we can’t do alone. We want to thank this year’s judges who made the hard cuts from a number of excellent candidates down to the “Final 40.” This year’s judges — all past 40 Under 40 honorees — are: Cynthia Burke, division director, Criminal Justice Research, SANDAG; Melanie Cruz Walsh, director of development, division of physical sciences, UCSD; Dennis Guseman, Ph.D., dean, College of Business Administration, Cal State San Marcos; Shandon Harbour, president, SDA Security; Adrian Kwiatkowski, director of community and governmental relations, The Monger Company; Lisa Martens, principal, Fish & Richardson P.C.; Louise Torio, owner, Historic San Diego Marketing and Consulting; and Jason Wood, senior vice president, Cisterra Development.

Meet this year’s honorees on the following pages.  Better yet, meet and celebrate with them in person on Sept. 18 at a spirited luncheon in their honor at the San Diego Convention Center. We’re also inviting back all the past year’s honorees as we mark a decade of overachievement that has made our region all the richer. It should be quite the networking event.

The Right Recipe for Today’s Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and Lisa Wilson-Wirth has poured her heart into creating modern and sustainable kitchens that enhance her clients’ well-being, lifestyle and health. As president and owner of Arclinea San Diego, Wilson-Wirth, 35, applies smart technologies and creative design solutions that have garnered interest from national magazines including Remodeling, K+BB, LUXE and Riviera and local notoriety in Ranch & Coast, San Diego Home/Garden and San Diego Magazine. Bon Appétit magazine took special notice of Wilson-Wirth firm’s commitment to Green Design, calling its bold, contemporary design for a historic Sherman Heights Victorian “the New Dream Kitchen” in the magazine’s April 2009 issue. Seeing an unfilled market need for European kitchen and bath solutions, Wilson-Wirth’s firm became the exclusive distributor for the Arclinea Collection, a line of custom Italian cabinetry that dates to 1925. Recent high-profile projects have included custom kitchens and baths for the 18 units at the Lofts at Moonlight Beach and a sleek, all-stainless steel bachelor’s kitchen that played host to an episode of “Sam the Cooking Guy.” Wilson-Wirth is an allied member of the American Institute of Architects, and industry partner for the American Society of Interior Designers, and a former board member (three years) of  Slow Food San Diego and a former (four-year) Convivium leader of Slow Food USA.
