October’s FDMC Leadership edition brings together into one publication four of Woodworking Network’s recognition programs: the Wood Industry Market Leaders, 40 Under 40, WOOD 100 and FDMC 300. Here’s a brief look at each:
The Wood Industry Market Leaders: Since 2009, Woodworking Network has paid tribute to select individuals 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. To date, close to 60 woodworking professionals have shared their influences, insights and strategies that earned them recognition. More can be found at WoodworkingNetwork.com/Market-Leaders.
40 Under 40: Making its debut in 2016, the program celebrates the achievements of woodworking’s next generation, who are already making a difference in the industry. This year’s 40 winners were selected from a field of more than 135 nominations; the nomination process was heavily shared on social media. Winners were also recognized at an event held during IWF.
