Julia Buckingham, Denise McGaha, Lisa Mende, and Michael Berman are among the 50 designers and industry professionals named “Innovators” of 2018 by Kitchen & Bath Design News magazine. The KBDN 50 Innovators is an annual list that recognizes the top 50 people who bring great designs to life and are making an impact on the kitchen and bath industry.
Buckingham, McGaha, and Mende are members of the ROHL Auth Lux Designer Guild and Berman has worked with ROHL for more than a decade designing exclusive faucet lines, including the award-winning Graceline Bath Series.
“Julia, Denise, Lisa, and Michael are each innovators in their own right and deserving of this honor and we congratulate them, “ said Greg Rohl, Vice President and Design Leader, House of Rohl. “Their successes, creativity, and vision help drive design and we are extremely proud to work with them.”
The editors of KBDN call this year’s Innovators, “The artists who never stop seeking inspiration, the teachers who have never stopped learning, the technology gurus who are always ahead of the curve, the business professionals who understand that innovation is what drives success and profitability, the marketing talents who understand how to re-imagine the very channels of communication – and, most of all, the human beings whose passion drives them to always strive to be better – and in doing so, to make the industry better as well.”
The complete list of 50 Innovators is listed in the October issue of KBDN.
