SEN Marks its Seventh Anniversary
Pittsburgh, PA The Signature Executive Network (SEN), the first buying group formed for kitchen and bath design firms, marked its seventh anniversary at its recent Fall Conference here. The three-day event, held in late October, attracted more than 200 SEN members, vendors and guests, according to SEN President Ken Peterson, CKD.
"After the Sept. 11 attack on America, there were reservations about rescheduling the conference, which was originally set for mid-September in Denver fear of flying, fear of another terrorist attack, fear of diminished returns for the attendees," Peterson observed. "But none of these concerns materialized as vendors and members rallied in support of each other."
Three members of the Chapel Hill, NC-based SEN were recognized for their outstanding sales achievement with vendor products through the first six months of 2001: Karen Bieszczak of the Bzak Design Group, Terrace Park, OH; Chuck Chwastyk of Custom Crafters, Kensington, MD, and John Lang of Lang's Kitchen & Bath, Mercerville, NJ. Bieszczak also won the Best of Show Award for the Fall Design Competition sponsored by the group's exclusive magazine, Signature Kitchens & Baths. A panel of architects and Certified Kitchen Designers judged the entries.
