Heavy Duty Trucking has named the 2021 Emerging Leaders, an annual award bestowed upon a group of young trucking industry leaders working at fleet companies and already making a difference in their fields.
The award honors leaders under 40 who are making a difference in both the trucking industry and within their work for a for-hire, private, government, or vocational fleet. These leaders are influential in the trucking industry, innovative and successful. They can point to outstanding accomplishments and demonstrate excellent leadership qualities.
This year’s Emerging Leaders demonstrate the ability to adapt, find their own space in fast-growing fleets, and embrace the pace of trucking.
