2006 20 under 40: Rising stars
February 1, 2006
COMMERCIAL, FABRICATION : AWARDS
It wasn’t easy for the 20-under-40 committee at Glass Magazine to pick 20 representatives out of the 72 nominations. Each sponsor had a fascinating story to tell about his or her nominee—of persistence, courage, ambition and enthusiasm—and each presented a special talent unsurpassed by the others.
As a group, the honorees selected represent the best of the flat-glass industry and present a rich tapestry of diversity. They each come from different disciplines within the industry and from different parts of the world. They are contract glaziers, glass-shop owners, department managers, sales managers, engineers and designers. They also are campers, boaters, motor-sports enthusiasts, soccer coaches, cooks, fishermen, scuba divers and devoted volunteers who continually give back to their industry, their communities and their countries. Their companies vary in size and ownership types, and spread across the continent.
Supervisors and peers nominated their stars through the Internet site www.GlassMagazine.com or by mail. Their deadline was Oct. 28.
Consider nominating the young heroes in your companies as you get a peek at the lives of this year’s selection on the following pages. The future of the industry is in their hands; they chart the course of glass history.
