The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) has revealed its Thirty Under 30 Class of 2022. The prestigious program, now in its 10th year, recognizes talented kitchen and bath professionals under the age of 30. Each year’s class comprises rising leaders across the industry and is widely regarded as the go-to program for the brightest young stars working in kitchen and bath design, sales, manufacturing and remodeling. Nominees were evaluated on their career or educational achievements, commitment to excellence in the kitchen and bath industry and leadership within their organizations.
“This is the 10th class in the program’s history, and it’s been so inspiring to see how much these rising young stars have accomplished in their careers,” said Bill Darcy, NKBA CEO. “We are proud to celebrate them, and provide opportunities to nurture them and help them grow in our industry. I know their future is bright.”
The 2022 Class, along with their companies and NKBA chapter affiliation, where applicable, include the following:
