    Wendy's Lindsay Radkoski was a young leader to watch in 2019, having risen to VP of brand marketing by the age of 33.

    Everyone’s talking about millennials and Gen Z as an important customer base, but what’s often lost is just how crucial these generations are for your workforce—particularly in your leadership ranks.

    Let’s face it: The labor pool is tight, and the need for cutting-edge ideas is only intensifying. As such, younger employees are increasingly relied upon to bring new energy and solutions to your brand, whether it’s as a franchisee, a manager, an entrepreneur, or an executive.

    For the last two years, we've published our Young Leaders to Watch report in an effort to identify quick-service and fast-casual leaders under the age of 35 who are bringing exciting new ideas and concepts to the market. Now we're on the lookout for more! Want to recognize one of your colleagues? Or think that person is you? Click here to submit by 11:59 p.m. ET on March 12, 2020. The final list of honorees will be featured in QSR's June 2020 issue.
