40 under 40 class of 2019

The Class of 2019 — Meet This Year’s Fab 40 By Tim Hodson

The industry is in for a brilliant future as this year's class paves the way to tomorrow.

I would like to introduce you to GPN’s 40 Under 40 Class of 2019.

Now in our eighth year, GPN’s 40 Under 40 program provides a snapshot (actually 40 of them) of what is in store for our industry.

The individuals that make up this year’s class represent the entire spectrum of the horticulture industry — from the initial creation of a new plant to its sale at retail to its installation at a consumer’s home — and everything in between.

These young women and men are making a difference in our industry today … and will continue to do so for many years to come.

Each and every one of these individuals was nominated by one or more of their peers for their achievements in their personal and professional lives.

Over the next 20 pages, you will get to know this year’s honorees a little better and find out what makes them tick. I am sure you will be impressed with their achievements as well as the potential they have to offer.

So without further delay, can I have a drumroll please?
