* 40 UNDER 40: 2009
Tired of bad news? We are, too. So we asked this year’s 40 Under 40 honorees to tell us something anything good. And they delivered, with tales of triumph over adversity, inspiration drawn from family and friends, good advice from mentors and lessons learned in this historic economic downturn. Read Gregg Kaplan’s profile below.

Gregg Kaplan cherishes his BlackBerry, but not for the reasons you’d expect. Alongside the e-mails and contact lists is a collection of several hundred notes and observations from a decade of business experiences from startups to one of America’s most established companies, McDonald’s Corp.
He’ll need it all in his job as president of Coinstar Inc., the Bellevue, Wash., company that makes its money counting coins and renting DVDs for 99 cents from kiosks in convenience and grocery stores. He has to figure out how to reignite growth in Coinstar’s core business while preparing for the day when the DVD business, Redbox Automated Retail LLC, slows. “Our view is it will happen, so don’t wait,” he says.
That’s where the BlackBerry comes in. Mr. Kaplan, who shuttles to Seattle from Redbox headquarters in Oakbrook Terrace, goes back to those jottings on his BlackBerry during flights: “You’re constantly trying to learn from your mistakes.”
Mr. Kaplan brings an unusual collection of experiences to Coinstar. The Long Island, N.Y., native’s passion for football led him to the University of Michigan, where he studied philosophy. He was planning to go to law school at New York University when he talked his way into an analyst job at investment bank Furman Selz and ended up at Harvard Business School.
He worked for several dot-com startups that ultimately failed, including Chicago’s Divine Interventures Inc., before joining McDonald’s, which was bankrolling new ideas, including Redbox, which Mr. Kaplan launched in 2003.
While Mr. Kaplan gets high marks as a strategist, it’s his ability to manage people that sets him apart, says Ron Woodard, a Coinstar board member. A favorite move: surprising employees with unexpected raises. “He believes as a good manager that you can’t wait to reward people for good work or wait for people to feel they’re undervalued to act,” says Mitch Lowe, who succeeded Mr. Kaplan as president of Redbox.

John Pletz

SOMETHING GOOD: “I continue to hear from employees who say, ‘When everybody else is cutting and slashing 401(k)s and benefits, Redbox is not only keeping them but we’re actually increasing them.’ It has built tremendous loyalty . . . and when the job market gets more heated, these employees are going to remember that.”
