Who Will You Nominate for the Class of 2014?By Tim Hodson

We are now taking nominations for the Class of 2014 of GPN’s 40 Under 40.

This is the third year that GPN will recognize 40 individuals (under the age of 40) who are helping set the standard for the horticulture industry.

We want to identify those young professionals who are making the inspired and/or crucial decisions to help propel the industry into the future. We are looking for those horticulture industry leaders who have the people skills, the technical know-how, creativity, resourcefulness and compassion that separate them from the rest of the pack.

Do you know someone who has demonstrated an unparalleled commitment to the industry? Does he or she have exemplary leadership skills both in business as well as in their community?

If you know someone that you think might qualify for the Class of 2014*, then please nominate him or her. You can nominate them by filling out the form at

The deadline for nominations is Jan. 20, 2014, and we will recognize this special group of individuals in our May issue.
