John Kepley, Teknetex inc and Kevin Ross, Metova Inc. both made the Nashville Business Journal’s annual list of “Forty Under 40.”

Ross’ profile included answers to the question:  How is your generation shaping your industry? ”I’m not sure it is ‘my’ generation, but we are in an interesting time where the mobile industry is taking shape right before our very eyes. We are living in a time where we have an unprecedented ability to create and distribute our work, impacting people globally.

Kepley’s answer to the same question included the response: I was born in the middle of what is considered Generation X. Gen X took the technology that had been created and began to frame it in ways that are used every day. They made the technology personal, which has shaped every industry in some way.”
