TIA's LaKisha Pindell was recognized as an industry leader in Connect magazine's "40 Under 40" feature as an outstanding industry professional.

LaKisha Pindell, director of Meetings at the Tire Industry Association (TIA), was recognized as an industry leader in Connect magazine's "40 Under 40" feature in the May/June 2014 issue.

The annual cover story recognizes outstanding industry professionals under the age of 40 for their early and continued contributions in the professional organization, specialty association and sports events industry.

This year, a record number of nominations were received, and Pindell was selected after Connect editors evaluated and reviewed all recommendations. The annual "40 Under 40" feature is not advertising-driven and not connected with any promotional contest, making this truly an honor for those selected, notes TIA.

"We always knew LaKisha was talented and for her to be recognized by her peers in the meeting planning industry truly validates her expertise,” said TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield.

“Over the years, LaKisha's attention to detail and creativity have allowed her to take TIA events to the next level. I know I speak on behalf of everyone at TIA when I say that we are very proud that she is being honored on a national level for her accomplishments."

"The individuals represented in our fourth annual '40 under 40' are the future of the meetings industry," said Chris Collinson, president and publisher of Collinson Media & Events.

"They, together with their colleagues, industry partners and mentors, are helping elevate the profession and move it forward."
