12 to watch under 40

Learning more about some of the industry’s leading young professionals

For the 10th consecutive year in the September issue, Rental Management presents our “12 to watch under 40” featuring a group of young professionals under the age of 40 who have become active participants in managing and running rental businesses as well as participating in industry activities at the local, state and national levels.

This year’s 12 selections include a cross section of professionals across the U.S., as well as one from Canada and one from the UK, who work in construction, general tool and/or event rental and likely will help shape the future of the equipment and event rental industry.

Two of those in the group served in the military before returning to a family business, some turned what was simply going to be a job into a career, and two others were involved in other family businesses before striking out on their own to start new rental companies.

The follwing are this year’s “12 to watch under 40:”

If we missed someone in this generation that you know and respect, let us know by sending an email to wayne.walley@ararental.org. We always are open to recommendations to consider as well as learning more about those in this age group who are making an impact.
