This elite group of woodworking professionals has successfully met the competitive and economic challenges facing North American companies, and turned them to their advantage. Companies under their leadership are thriving – a fact highlighted by the number of firms included in this year’s FDMC 300 listing.
The 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 not as fortunate.
Listed below are the stories behind these leading executives: the influences, insights and strategies that earned them recognition.
The Wood Industry Market Leaders is an audience recognition program, and the selection of the 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 Current and past Market Leaders will also be recognized in print, online and at industry events.
