AKRON—Leadership doesn't always start at the top. Sometimes, it starts with the youngest employees, the ones with the big ideas, fresh perspectives and never-give-up attitudes.
This year, the Rubber & Plastics News staff would like to honor some of the industry's youngest and brightest stars. The ones who think outside the box, encourage businesses to try new things or inspire others with their passion. Our July 24 issue will feature a special section, recognizing these individuals, all of whom are younger than 40.
To nominate someone to be featured in the Under 40 section, contact News Editor Chris Sweeney at [email protected], and provide him the name or names of those who should be considered for the honor. Explain why they are deserving of recognition and provide contact information for each nominee, as they will be asked to fill out a short survey.
Nominations also can be made online.
Nominees may come from all areas and positions in the rubber industry. From manufacturers to suppliers, from distribution firms to associations.
The deadline for submissions is May 31.
