Top 20 Stories of 2013: #3 tED magazine Recognizes Industry’s Young Professionals in 2013 30 Under 3

Every weekday in December, tED magazine is counting down the Top 20 Stories of 2013. Below, the #3 story of 2013, originally posted on June 4, 2013.

St. LouistED magazine has released its 2013 “30 Under 35” list of rising stars from across the electrical industry.

Representing today’s top emerging leaders, this list recognizes 30 talented young professionals who have the initiative, drive, integrity and creativity to move the industry forward in the decades to come.

“Bright, up-and-coming talent is the key to our industry’s future,” said Misty Byers, editor of tEDmagazine. “Judging by the competition’s strong response, there are many valued young people in the electrical channel today, which made narrowing the field difficult. Through their accomplishments, the individuals on this list demonstrate they have the skills and knowledge to lead.”

The competition, open to electrical professionals 34 years old or younger (at the time of nomination), drew nominations from mentors, managers and other industry leaders working in electrical distribution, manufacturing, and related technology and service organizations. The tED editorial team blindly judged each submission, placing emphasis on such traits as dedication, innovation, leadership and people skills, commitment to training, personal integrity and work-life balance.
