RV PRO is proud to present the chosen honorees for its fourth annual 40 Under 40 recognition.
Each year, 40 professionals from across the RV industry are spotlighted as some of the brightest up-and-coming leaders under 40 years old. Honorees were nominated by their peers for above-and-beyond determination, leadership and success in their respective markets. The RV PRO team selects winners based on contributions to their workplace, industry tenure and involvement in their communities.
“We had more than 100 submissions to choose from this year, and narrowing down the list is always difficult, because we have so many talented professionals in this industry,” said Jennifer King, RV PRO executive editor. “We want to congratulate the 2023 class of RV PRO’s 40 Under 40. We can’t wait to tell our readers more about these outstanding individuals in our December issue!”
