The Search For The Tank Storage Industry’s ‘forty Under 40’ 2023 Is Underway


StocExpo, the world’s leading bulk liquid storage event, which will be held 14-16 March 2023 at the Rotterdam Ahoy, is searching for the industry’s most dynamic professionals who are under the age of 40.

The initiative, now in its second year, showcases the rising stars of the industry – in tank storage, bulk liquid and the linked supply chain professions. The StocExpo 2023 Forty Under 40 will recognise both those with the greatest potential to become industry leaders in the future and those who have achieved greatness already.

Professionals working in the industry are encouraged to self-nominate if they are under 40. Or, there is also the option to nominate eligible colleagues that are making a significant contribution to the sector. All nominations need to be in by midnight 20 November 2022.

Rikki Bhachu, StocExpo’s Head of Marketing, says, “Bringing in the next generation of talent in this industry is vital. If we want to attract and retain exceptional people, we need to recognise talent and make sure new people in the industry have role models to look up to. That’s what the Forty under 40 initiative is all about.

“We want to celebrate and support the next generation of talent within the industry and showcase their contribution so far. So, if you know someone who merits being recognised – or you are that person – we want to hear from you.”

Entrants will be judged by a panel of industry experts looking for individuals who, thanks to their excellence and commitment, are making a real difference to their organisation and the wider industry.

Previous winners include Caitlin Geisinger (Burns & McDonnell Engineering), Jelle Swanenberg (Smartflow), Stuart Kenny (Eddfyi Technologies) and many more.

The successful 40 will be celebrated with a drinks’ reception held in their honour at StocExpo 2023. All will be provided with special VIP passes, providing free access to the event’s conference programme and other exclusive zones, such as the VIP lounge. On top of this, the 40 will be invited to participate in all of StocExpo’s “Next Gen” related content and activities. The 40 will also be offered discounted tickets to the 2023 Global Tank Storage Awards and will be eligible to apply for the awards Rising Star category.
