This annual program honors North American automotive executives who are young, entrepreneurial-minded and possess the skills and talent needed to become industry leaders of tomorrow.

Now in its fourth year, this program recognizes automotive executives in middle and upper management who are likely to grow in influence and prominence, together with the companies who are nurturing that future leadership talent.

Rising Stars come from all disciplines - designers, engineers, finance, purchasing, product planners and more. What they have in common is a drive beyond their years and a level of dedication that puts them on a path toward becoming industry All Stars.

Nominations for the 2018 Rising Stars: Automakers and Suppliers will open in the Fall of 2017.
