Organizational update – GenNext introduces its 4 Under 40 Awards

GenNext is adding a unique new awards program to the heavy-duty independent aftermarket with its 4 Under 40 Awards. The new award program is geared around recognizing younger individuals for their outstanding commitment to the aftermarket industry.

All industry professionals are welcome to nominate someone for a 4 Under 40 award, and self-nominations are accepted and encouraged. Distributor, supplier, marketing group, media and association management employees are eligible for the award.

GenNext’s goal with these awards are to honor 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 our industry, and will be honored at the Commercial Vehicle Solutions Network (CVSN) Aftermarket Distribution Summit in September in Braselton, Ga.

“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,” says 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.”

Award criteria includes:

  • 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.
