OPE Business seeking the best young leaders at the OPE dealership level for its 2022 40 Under 40 awards.
Nominees can be from any independent servicing OPE dealership and must be under the age of 40 as of January 1, 2022. Self-nominations are accepted.
Nominators can be from any company or organization that does business in the OPE industry (dealership owners/operators, manufacturers, distributor sales reps, etc.). Nominators will remain anonymous throughout the entire 40 Under 40 award process (and afterward).
A couple of additional notes:
Sorry, our previous 40 Under 40 award winners are not eligible to again be nominated (however, they can serve as nominators for other nominees).
OPE Business staff will reach out to winning nominees to notify of them of their inclusion in the 2022 40 Under 40, to gather additional information and to arrange for a follow-up phone interview. Our staff will make every effort to contact each nominee, but due to production deadlines a nominee not responding to our outreach attempts may be excluded from inclusion in the 40 Under 40 awards.
All final 40 Under 40 award winners will be profiled in a special report in our 2022 May/June issue of OPE Business. Our 40 Under 40 article will be promoted in the magazine itself (see here for our 2021 coverage of the 40 Under 40 award winners), as well as in our newsletter and via social media and other channels.
Questions? Please email OPE Business editor-in-chief Greg Sharpless at email@example.com and include “40 Under 40” in the subject line.
NOMINATIONS ARE DUE MONDAY, MARCH 14, 2022.
