Heavy Duty Trucking magazine is seeking nominations for its HDT Emerging Leaders, a group of young trucking industry leaders working at fleet companies and already making a difference in their fields.

Young professionals who are influential, innovative, and successful, who can point to outstanding accomplishments and leadership qualities, and who have a passion for the trucking industry, will be featured in HDT's October issue.

Emerging leaders will be under 40 years of age and work for a for-hire, private, government, or vocational fleet. The award nomination is open to those employed in any aspect of a fleet’s business and all levels, whether management, maintenance, sales, marketing, safety, IT, training, or elsewhere.

Whether nominees are in the top management position of a company, a shop foreman, or the IT person who led a key data transition, as long as they are making a difference in the trucking industry, they are eligible for nomination.

Leaders honored as an HDT Emerging Leader will be featured in an article in our October print magazine issue. The nominee must be under 40 years old as of Jan. 31, 2018. Self-nominations are also being accepted.

The nomination deadline is Aug. 17, 2018. To nominate an Emerging Leader, fill out the online nomination form here.
