Plumbing Engineer magazine set out to find plumbing engineers/designers in their twenties who have achieved notable success in their respective field(s). We came across 10 individuals, who each in their own right has proven to be on the track to a successful, as well as an impactful, career.
Each of the 10 individuals we interviewed is moving their respective companies and communities, and our industry forward.
There’s been much talk about recruiting the younger generation into our industry, and I couldn’t agree more. But it is equally important to recognize the young emerging leaders who have already made that choice, and who are contributing to the work we do. We would like to honor these individuals by sharing their stories and love of industry.
Our “Top 10 in Their 20s” have been proactive, imaginative, resourceful, and dedicated, and we’re excited to share their stories with you.
