Now in its 13th year, Woodworking Network's Wood Industry Market Leaders pays tribute to outstanding men and women that have made an impact, not only at their companies but within the various wood products industries: cabinet, residential furniture, contract furniture, architectural woodwork, store fixture, home organization and components. Since 2009, more than 80 industry professionals have shared their influencers, insights and strategies that earned them recognition.
This elite group has met the competitive and economic challenges facing North American companies and turned them to their advantage. Their endeavors also extend beyond the realm of their businesses, to working for the betterment of their respective industries and their communities, through volunteer efforts, philanthropic endeavors, or work in creating jobs to help those less fortunate.
Read the stories behind these leading executives: the influences, insights and strategies that earned them recognition. The full list of movers and shakers in the woodworking industry, as recognized by Woodworking Network, can be found here.
The Wood Industry Market Leaders is an audience recognition program and the selection of honorees is done by the editors of Woodworking Network based on input from industry associations, editorial recommendations and submitted nominations. The next call for nominations is June 2021. Those interested in submitting nominations are asked to contact Karen Koenig at [email protected]. Current and past Market Leaders are recognized in the October "Leadership" issue of FDMC, online and at industry events.
