Kitchen & Bath Design News Names Industry Innovators for 2020

EVANSTON, Ill.–()–Kitchen & Bath Design News, the industry’s leading trade magazine for kitchen and bath professionals has announced its Innovators for 2020.

At a time when circumstances have compelled most businesses to find nontraditional, creative ways to survive, kitchen and bath firms have proven their adaptability, handling social distancing, supplier interruptions and reduced client income and not only surviving, but thriving. This resilience is due largely to individuals at the vanguard of the industry, those who have implemented pioneering business management strategies and technological solutions, as well as those who have embraced the evolving roles of the kitchen and bath as wellness-centered spaces in a work-from-home world.

Nominated by their peers, the 2020 Innovators have ensured not only the survival and longevity of the kitchen and bath industry, but also that the industry will continue to be dynamic and future-focused.
