GenNext, CVSN’s special segment for heavy-duty millennials, has announced the creation and introduction of its new “4 Under 40 Awards,” a new awards program for the heavy-duty aftermarket focusing on recognizing younger individuals for their outstanding commitment to the aftermarket industry.
All industry professionals are welcome to nominate someone for the “4 Under 40 award” – young men and women who are demonstrating involvement, innovation and commitment within the aftermarket. The four young professionals chosen from the list of nominees will represent the best of the industry, and will be honored at the Commercial Vehicle Solutions Network (CVSN) Aftermarket Distribution Summit during the opening general session on Monday, Sept. 10.
The awards are free to enter and self-nominations are encouraged as well. Distributor, supplier, marketing group, media and association management employees are eligible for the award.
“In the heavy-duty industry we have some of the most inspirational, brightest and best leaders to have left their impressions before us. The next generation of leaders has some very big shoes to fill, to say the least,” said GenNext President Nick Seidel of Action Truck Parts. “The 4 Under 40 Award is way to recognize those individuals who are young and passionate about our industry. Those individuals already leaving an imprint and beginning to fill the shoes of our predecessors.”
Judging criteria for the awards include:
- Under the age of 40 (as of Sept. 1, 2018)
- Currently employed within the heavy-duty aftermarket industry
- Demonstrates leadership qualities
- Strives to propel the industry forward through involvement and innovation
