We’re super excited to announce that our own Kelly (Cezat) Manas has been named as one of the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s (NKBA) “30 Under 30: Exceptional Young Kitchen & Bath Professionals”. We couldn’t be more proud of Kelly on this achievement and you can be sure you’ll be hearing more about it in the coming weeks.
Kelly was selected out of a pool of hundreds of contestants and as NKBA states;
“They’re more than just the voice of the next generation of kitchen and bath professionals; they are also enthusiastic entrepreneurs, forward-thinking CEOs, and cutting-edge designers – and all are still in their 20s.” With that being said, I can say that they hit the nail on the head using this as a description of Kelly.
In a program called “Introductions to the Industry,” the 30 Under 30 group will make its debut on Friday, April 19, at 10:00 a.m. at the NKBA Booth #3758 at this year’s Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in New Orleans. 2013 NKBA President John Morgan and 2013 NKBA Vice President Carolyn Cheetham, CMKBD, will introduce each of the young professionals, who will then kick off “Center Stage,” a compilation of complementary presentations taking place throughout the three-day show.
While I doubt many of you will be joining us in New Orleans for the event, please do join us in congratulating Kelly on this career changing achievement.
