This article first appeared in the April 2018 issue of Pro Remodeler.

Every year through our Forty Under 40 awards program, Pro Remodeler recognizes a handful of young, promising  industry professionals, who represent the industry both as it is and as it will soon be. This year we couldn’t have asked for a better group. These are the minds that will overcome the labor shortage and embrace the next generation of technology; who will take remodeling into an era of new professionalism and efficiency. Learn from their insights and remember their names. 

As always, warmest congratulations to our winners, and thanks to everyone who entered.
