Millennials and Generation X, it's your turn for the spotlight.
I know. The baby boomers have been reluctant to leave the stage. It's the story of your life, right? Your parents, and their generation, have dominated the economic and cultural landscape for 50-plus years.
But it's 2014. The boomers are starting to retire. The time for young talent has arrived.
This year, Plastics News will recognize the Rising Stars of our industry. We're looking for people under the age of 40 who are on the path to becoming plastics industry leaders — or who are already there.
What are the criteria? We're looking for the best and the brightest. Bring us your talented managers, your young entrepreneurs and your natural leaders.
Let's hear from the future company presidents and Plastics Hall of Famers, sure. And also the whiz kids who are bringing the plastics industry into the 21st century with new technologies and modern ideas.
You'll attract our attention if you're making a name for your company, and if you have an interesting story to tell about how you're changing the corporate culture, or adding value to the business. If you're involved in community and industry activities, that's a big plus.
So if you were born in 1974, or later, drop us a line.
We promise not to bore you with references to “The Graduate.” We know you think Dustin Hoffman was the guy who plays Ben Stiller's dad in “Little Fockers.” (Obviously “Ben” didn't take that advice about plastics. That's his loss.)
