In an effort to highlight and support the best young dealership leaders across the outdoor power equipment industry, OPE Business magazine is launching its 40 Under 40 spotlight for 2021.
The OPE industry is home to many bright, successful leaders who seldom receive recognition for their hard work and achievements, and the editorial staff at OPE Business aims to change that with the new 40 Under 40 program that celebrates young OPE trailblazers and innovators at the independent servicing dealership level.
Nominations for the 40 Under 40 program are now open. Nominees can be from any independent OPE dealership and must be under 40 years of age as of Jan. 1, 2021. Nominators can be from any company or organization doing business in the OPE industry – dealership owners/operators, manufacturer and distributor sales reps, etc. – and self-nominations are welcome.
“We’re excited to launch the 40 Under 40 program for 2021,” commented OPE Business Editor-in-Chief Dave McMahon, “It’s an opportunity to highlight distinguished young leaders from independent OPE dealerships across the country and give them a chance to be in the spotlight. Since the onset of COVID, we’ve heard of so many young dealership team members that are going above and beyond to make dealership operations successful. Let’s hear about those at your dealership who stand out.”
After nominations have been collected, the OPE Business editorial team will read all submissions, selecting the finalists based upon their accomplishments and contributions to the industry, while also considering how their dedication and innovative ideas can move the industry forward in the future.
The 40 Under 40 spotlight will be published as the cover story in the May issue of OPE Business, featuring every finalist with a profile and photo. They will also be showcased on a webinar so the industry can get to know them better.
Nominations for the 40 Under 40 spotlight must be submitted by March 15, 2021 to be considered.
