Hope Hicks, who was named interim White House communications director in earlier this summer, has now been officially hired.

An early addition to Trump’s presidential campaign, Hicks became the youngest White House communications director in history.

The same week Hicks was brought in to fill a high-profile vacancy, Kraft Heinz, the company known for its namesake Ketchup and Velveeta cheese, named David Knopf, a 29-year-old vice president, as its new chief financial officer. Whether it is the business world or the political arena, a large age difference with one’s peer could potentially cause friction.  

What has been your experience working with people in a different age group? Is there a particular industry where age gaps are more prevalent than others?
