BOWIE, Md. (July 25, 2014) — LaKisha Pindell, director of meetings for the Tire Industry Association (TIA), was recognized as an industry leader in the May/June 2014 issue of "Connect" magazine, TIA said.
Ms. Pindell was named as one of Connect’s “40 Under 40” in its annual cover story honoring young executives for their early and continued contributions to the professional organization, specialty association and sports events industries.
Ms. Pindell was chosen from a record number of nominees for this year’s “40 Under 40” list, according to TIA. The list is not advertising-driven and not connected with any promotional contest, making inclusion in the list a true honor, it said.
“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.”
Connect magazine covers the association, professional organization and specialty group meetings industry. The complete “40 Under 40” list, including individual profiles, can be found at Connect magazine's website.
