Wanted: 20 Under 40 Industry Stars

Our magazine will be reprising a subject that was last covered in 2004: “20 Under 40.” We will be compiling brief profiles on 20 leading young executives in the printing industry under the age of 40 for our November issue. You can help us out by sending in your nominations for worthy candidates. If the candidate turned 40 in 2009, that’s fine…we’re not going to be examining birth certificates. Your word is gold in our book.

Who makes for a top young turk? Good question. It’s a subjective exercise. The candidate can be a mid- or senior-level executive in management, production, sales, marketing, IT, you name it. This person should be intelligent, ambitious, extremely motivated, energetic, market savvy to the point of being somewhat prescient, boast great awareness and still be willing to learn. You know, the kind of person you just want to hate because they have so much on the ball, but then you feel bad because, on top of all that, they’re really nice and down to earth.

The only prerequisite is that this man/woman works for a printing company. No industry suppliers, brokers, print buyers, consultants or personal assistants/trainers/life coaches. If you wish to nominate someone or have a question, contact me at ecagle@napco.com or call (215) 238-5326. Nominations must be received no later than Sept. 18.
