Under 40 Class of 2017

By Rod Sutton, Editorial Director | April 21, 2017

Construction Equipment recognizes 14 young people in its fifth annual Under 40 in Construction Equipment Awards.

These honorees are all under the age of 40 as of the end of 2017, and represent the exciting potential existing within the heavy-equipment industry.

The Under 40 Awards are open to all disciplines within the construction equipment industry, not only those who own and manage fleet assets, but also their staffs, distributors, manufacturers, and others who support the equipment-management team.

This year we feature equipment professionals who have worked their way up the equipment ranks, owners and entreprenuers, and members of both the manufacturing and distribution communities.

In choosing our 14 winners, we looked for the following qualities and characteristics: leadership skills, inventiveness, interpersonal skills, training, dedication, personal integrity, technical skills, and industry and community involvement.

During the coming months, we’ll profile some of these winners that show particular promise. Those profiles, as well as those of previous winners, are available at ConstructionEquipment.com/Under40.
