“It was an immense honor to be named as an inaugural 4 Under 40 award recipient. To be recognized, not only by your peers, but by the industry you serve, is a thrill. It’s been a pleasure to watch each year as four additional leaders are named,” said Nikki Paschall, GenNext board member, HDA Truck Pride director of marketing and inaugural 4 Under 40 award winner in 2018.
