 September 13, 2018

Eaton Marketing Manager, Danielle Larson, earns a place on TED Magazine's list of rising stars in the electrical industry.

"For the seventh consecutive year, we sent out a call across the industry to find some of the industry’s "rising stars" - electrical professionals 34 years old or younger who have the initiative, drive, in tegrity, and creativity to move the industry forward in the decades to come," said TED Magazine.

Discovering the best and the brightest 

The call drew nominations from mentors, managers, and other industry leaders working in electrical distribution, manufacturing, and related technology and service organizations. The thirty-strong selection reaffirmed for TED that while the electrical channel should continue to focus on ways to recruit the best and brightest, the industry is rich with young professionals taking on leadership roles.
