HBSDealer Recognizes Two 84 Lumber Associates for Top Women in Hardware & Building Supply Awards
After a record number of nominations, Hardware and Building Supply Dealer released its 2022 class of Top Women in Hardware and Building Supply. Among the winners were two 84 Lumber associates: Christi Powell and Malin LaPlace.
“With a record number of nominations, the task of selecting the 2022 class of Top Women was very difficult,” said Amy Grant, associate publisher of HBSDealer. “We are thrilled that so many people participated in the process. The end result is a special group of high-performing leaders and rising stars who will shape this industry for years to come.”
Honorees are chosen based on nominations from industry peers in the following award categories: Business Excellence, which recognizes women who have demonstrated achievement, growth and success in the hardware and home improvement industry; and Rising Star, which recognizes women considered to be an up-and-coming star in their profession. Christi Powell, 84 Lumber’s women’s business enterprise market manager, was selected as one of this year’s “Business Excellence” winners. Malin LaPlace, senior learning designer for 84 Lumber, was selected for a “Rising Star” award.
Honorees will be formally recognized during the second annual Top Women in Hardware & Building Supply event in Chicago on November 8 and 9, 2022.
The HBS Dealer Top Women Awards were created to promote the role of women in the industry and support women in their varied professional journeys. As a woman-owned company, 84 Lumber is proud to support the awards and women in the industry across the country.
“We always enjoy working with HBSDealer, and their Top Women in Hardware and Building Supply program is always a huge success,” said 84 Lumber Vice President of Marketing Amy Smiley. “On behalf of 84 Lumber, congratulations to Christi, Malin and all the incredible 2022 award winners.
