Who can become a Rising Star?

Rising Stars come from all disciplines on the manufacturing/supply side of the auto industry - 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.

How does the program work?

Nominations for the fifth annual Rising Stars program are accepted through December 31, 2017.

A candidate may nominate him/herself or be nominated by a colleague, manager or mentor. Nominees will be notified by email about their nomination, and asked to complete an online candidate information form. Automotive News editorial staff and a select group of industry leaders will meet to review the nominations and candidate information forms.

The Rising Stars will be announced in a special section inside the April 9, 2018 issue of Automotive News.
