Dr. Richard Bowman

Dr. Richard Bowman was recognized for being named one of Albuquerque Business First’s 40 Under 40.

Dr. Bowman is part of the 19th group of young professionals under the age of 40 honored by Albuquerque Business First.  The process was competitive with more than 120 people vying for the coveted 40 positions.  The 2020 honorees are plant managers, health care professionals serving the homeless, executive vice presidents, attorneys, national laboratory executives, and so much more: fathers, daughters, partners, volunteers, and New Mexicans committed to make their home a better place. These leaders play a critical role in the community, now, as our state faces enormous challenges due to the COVID-19 virus, as well into the future.

Dr. Bowman is guided by his belief that children are the future and has dedicated his life to improving the lives of children in New Mexico through technology and data and analysis.  He led the implementation of esports within APS and created a scholarship to ensure students who wanted would be able to participate.  Dr.  Bowman also serves on the Community Advisory Board of UNM's Masters of Public Policy Program.  Congratulations on being named of the 40 Under 40 Dr. Bowman!
