If you know a leader age 35 or under—whether they are in manufacturing and design, marketing, retail, events and media, or distribution—nominate them for the SEMA News 35 Under 35. Honorees are young professionals with the innovation, drive and ideas to shape a strong future, and also represent the wide range of career opportunities that currently exist within the automotive specialty-equipment market.
Nominate a candidate now for the 2016 SEMA News 35 Under 35. Nominations are due Tuesday, May 31, 2016.
For more details on the 35 Under 35 program and complete details on all of last year's winners, read through this article taken from the September 2015 issue of SEMA News.
SEMA members currently work with creative and talented young professionals who are already moving the industry in new and different directions. These professionals have played major roles in leveraging new and emerging technologies—in areas that include marketing and product development—with a traditional automotive aftermarket business to expand company reach and customer interaction.
They could be budding superstars at an established company, entrepreneurs building their own brands or innovators who have launched companies that are sure to become big names in the future. What they all will have in common are fresh ideas, enthusiasm, charisma and the drive to succeed. These are people who know what’s going on at the ground level, who see opportunities that are now forming and who travel in circles that may be very different from those of our “old-school” industry leaders.
Winners will be chosen based on their business success, contribution to their organization, industry knowledge and community involvement. We’ll honor the winners in the September issue of SEMA News and on www.sema.org.
