The Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) has named Angela Howard, Horizon Global's manager of public and media relations, a member of its "40 Under 40" program.
Beginning this year, RVIA's "40 Under 40" recognizes 40 individuals younger than 40 who have been nominated by their peers as exemplifying leadership at their company, inspiring others, showing a sense of community, and supporting the industry through their efforts.
Howard started at Horizon Global in 2014 as a public relations specialist and was promoted to public and media relations manager in 2016.
“It’s an honor to be chosen as a leader in the RV industry and to be in the company of so many other innovative and forward-thinking individuals,” Howard says. “This industry has brought so much joy—and innovation—to so many over the years; I’m excited to help shape what comes next."
