Dealerscope 2020 40 under 40

Dealerscope’s annual 40 Under 40 program was designed to recognize the best and the brightest idea-generators in the consumer technology industry.

The individuals honored in these pages were voted into recognition by their supervisors and by their industry peers, followed by a review by the Dealerscope staff. While some of the votes have come from inside these honorees’ companies from their fellow team members, other nominations have come from outside their immediate corporate spheres.

Whatever the origin of the votes, the motivation for voting is always the same: to honor excellence. Those whose profiles appear here are among the industry’s most forward-thinking and progressive consumer technology professionals, attracted to both the fun and to the many challenges that come with working in a field that is always in a state of flux and renewal – an industry whose refreshes, although sometimes turbulent, can provide elation and a sense of career accomplishment like few other businesses.

That said, we are pleased to present our “40.”
