up-and-comer(redirected from up and comers)
Someone who displays signs of or potential for ambitious development, advancement, and achievement. That new intern we hired certainly is an up-and-comer, don't you think? I wouldn't be surprised if she ended up running this place someday. He might not have won the championship round, but this amateur is definitely an up-and-comer!
