The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), the authority on all things residential kitchen and bath, has promoted Pamela Ryerson and Nicole Krueger to director positions. Ryerson, who previously held the position of KBIS conference and events manager, has been promoted to director of marketplace, and Krueger, the association’s controller, is now director of finance and administration. The appointments were effective Jan. 28, 2019.
In her new post, Ryerson continues to manage the annual KBIS trade show and the events and marketing teams at NKBA. She has assumed responsibility for the industry relations department, which includes Elle H-Millard, the association’s manager of industry relations and an NKBA Insider. Ryerson reports to Suzie Williford, executive vice president of industry relations and chief strategy officer.
As director of finance and administration, Krueger continues to manage the finance team and has assumed responsibility for the human resources and building/production departments. Additionally, she is serving as interim director of technology. Krueger’s team includes Julie Wescott, business transformation manager; Robert Pattky, manager of production support and building services; and Liz Hickey, human resources generalist. Krueger reports to Bill Darcy, CEO.
“We hold both of these consummate professionals in the highest regard, as they’ve each shown dedication and enthusiasm in their respective positions,” said Williford. “Pam worked tirelessly on the KBIS show, and Nicole has proven herself in a relatively short period of time, so it was an easy decision to expand their roles within the NKBA.”
