2007 20 under 40: Fresh Talents
Glass Magazine received 60 nominations for this year’s 20 Under 40 honors.
They all deserve a round of applause.
The Class of 2007 ranges in age from 25 to 39 and includes four women. Their jobs show diversity such as foreman, lab supervisor, designer, salesman, vice president and owner. Their companies represent 11 states and Canada. Outside their glass hours, the honorees spend time boating, skiing, fishing, painting, scuba diving, coaching, backpacking, wine tasting and collecting, playing paintball, learning karate and Irish dancing.
These people are shaping the industry during the early stages of the 21st century in which automation and technology continue to bring changes and improvements.
Supervisors, co-workers and peers sent in the nominations until Oct. 28. Six Glass Magazine staff members reviewed the nominations and then pitched their choices one afternoon. Discussions and research followed before the approval of a final list.
As you read their profiles, consider people you know for next year’s selection process.
