EVERY WEEKDAY FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR, TED MAGAZINE IS COUNTING DOWN THE TOP 20 STORIES OF 2018. BELOW, THE #4 MOST-VIEWED STORY OF THE YEAR, ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON MAY 4, 2018.
tED magazine has named 30 of the best and brightest young members of our supply chain as the 2018 “30 Under 35”. The winner count brings the total number of “30 Under 35” award winners to 210, as tED magazine has honored 30 people for the past seven years.
This year’s winners will receive their awards at the NAED LEAD Conference in Austin, Texas July 18-20. Their job descriptions include Engineering, Marketing Specialist, Branch Manager, and eBusiness Specialist.

The NAED LEAD Conference (Leadership Enhancement and Development) helps companies retain top employees by giving them the tools for future success. During the two and a half day event, attendees will develop management skills, talk with other members of our supply chain about best practices, and hear from leadership experts about successful strategies. This year’s keynote speakers at the NAED LEAD Conference include Aaron Thomas and Ben Newman.
Aaron Thomas is a high school football coach from Iowa. Before you start to wonder what that has to do with electrical distribution, you should know his story of overcoming adversity and maximizing your opportunities every day. How he responds to having “good” days and “bad” days will change the way you take on your daily challenges to succeed.
Ben Newman is also a coach, only Ben coaches business performance and will question your mental toughness while asking you to create your “I am” statement. Ben will teach LEAD attendees how to drive sales success and take your revenue to the next level.
Both speakers will take questions from attendees and offer advice while at the event.
