Last Chance To Recognize Young Leaders
Jim Prevor’s Perishable Pundit, April 27, 2010
The future of the industry is always being decided by people and their actions.
The industry has thus established many mechanisms for attracting, developing and retaining good people.
United has its Leadership Class and its Executive Development Program at Cornell University.
PMA has long had its Leadership Symposium, the Pack Family/PMA Career Pathways Fund and the Nucci Scholarship for Culinary Innovation.
Over the past five years, Pundit sister publication, PRODUCE BUSINESS, has done an annual recognition of the trade’s young leadership with its annual 40-Under-Forty issue. You can review the five classes to date:
40-Under-Forty — June 2005
40-Under-Forty — June 2006
40-Under-Forty — June 2007
40-Under-Forty — June 2008
In an attempt to both recognize young leaders and inspire those following behind them, the 40-Under-Forty recipients are unveiled annually in the June issue of PRODUCE BUSINESS and then feted, along with the Pack students, at a special invitation-only reception at PMA each year.
We look for individuals who contribute to their companies, their peers, their industry and their community.
We are now accepting final nominations for this year’s honorees.
It is a simple form and we encourage you to think about young leadership in the trade and who is deserving of recognition.
