The United Macedonian Diaspora: 2015 UMD Macedonian Diaspora’s 40 Under 40 List

The United Macedonian Diaspora (UMD) is a leading international non-governmental organization promoting the interests and needs of Macedonians and Macedonian communities worldwide. UMD sought out nominations for forty rising stars of Macedonian heritage who are rocking their field of expertise as diverse as technology, business, real estate, medical field, fitness, finance, teaching, arts, law, and government.

UMD’s 40 Under 40 initiative, launched in 2014, was built to celebrate and promote the leaders that have excelled and endorse them as role models for our communities. Launching the list, UMD Indiana Representative and 40 Under 40 Coordinator Argie N. Bellio stated:

“These individuals are highly driven, productive and talented Macedonians. It’s not only important to recognize them for what they’ve accomplished but to showcase them as leaders to learn from. UMD also believes this list will provide positive role models for future generations of Macedonians, especially our next generation leaders.”

UMD sincerely hopes this list will motivate these forty stars to continue making accomplishments in their respective careers and continue being proud of their Macedonian heritage and helping Macedonian causes.
