Awards nomination deadline extended!

OPE Business staff is now accepting nominations for its two awards programs – the Movers & Shakers Award, and the 40 Under 40 Award. Nominations are coming in now, and staff has decided to extend the deadline for nominations to Sept. 15.

Movers & Shakers

The OPE Business Movers & Shakers Award recognizes professionals in the OPE industry who lead with vision and influence to move the industry forward. In the past year, these leaders have embraced the challenges facing the industry, they’ve taken the opportunity to rethink the way they do business, and they’ve managed teams to success. Winners of this prestigious award span across business in the OPE industry – including manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, dealers or others.

Winners of this Movers & Shakers award are leading people and teams to success, whether in sales, service, manufacturing, distribution, marketing, you name it. “Success” might be an objective outcome, goals focused, or it might be more subjective, resulting in a process improvement, a design direction, or a cultural change. 

Nominees can be from any company, group or organization that does business in the OPE industry – manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, dealers – as long as they are showing the vision and leadership to move the industry forward.

40 Under 40

The OPE Business 40 Under 40 Award celebrates 40 people in the OPE industry who are under 40 years old and are doing amazing work. The award winners work in dealerships, in technology, in services, and in manufacturing; this award program is open to all who work in the OPE industry. Nominated by their peers and chosen by our staff, the professionals honored here are driving improvements in sales, customer service, marketing and technology, engineering, and more. They’re helping grow the industry locally and nationally. And we need your help finding and recognizing them.

Winners must be under 40 years old on Nov. 5, 2023 – that’s the start of our OPE Dealer Forum conference and awards celebration. We accept nominations from peers and from potential winners themselves.

Award criteria is largely subjective; but you know a leader when you see one, and we do too. The 40 Under 40 Award recipients are innovators, solving problems with new ideas, strategies and tactics. They are relentless, with a work ethic that sets an example. They are helpful, working unselfishly beyond their own job title and description. And they are promoters, helping advance the OPE industry for future growth and opportunities.

We will feature the 2023 award winners in the November/December issue of OPE Business.

Submit nominations by Sept. 15, 2023.
