pro remodeler's forty under 40 recognizes young remodelers and exterior replacement professionals
This article first appeared in the April 2019 issue of Pro Remodeler.


The Forty Under 40 awards are special to those of us at Pro Remodeler, because it gives us an opportunity to celebrate something of paramount important to our industry: young talent. They come from vastly different backgrounds, locations, and specialties, but it’s their stellar reputations that drew our attention, and their innovations and accomplishments that earned them this award.

So take your time combing over what they have to say—read about Lance Popp’s “Never Settle” initiative; or how the cloud has changed Dan White’s company; or why Brad Hogan left his lead carpenter system behind (and for what). Some names you’ll recognize, others will be new to you. All you should remember. Not only are they are the industry’s future leaders, they are the future of the industry itself.  

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