Industry leaders were honored at the International Home Furnishings Representative Association (IHFRA) All Stars Awards, which were held at the Spring 2023 High Point Market on the top floor of the Suites at Market Square.
Four outstanding IHFRA reps were recognized by their peers as being outstanding in four areas: as an ambassador, a mentor, a trailblazer, and an innovator.
IHFRA promotes the professionalism, productivity, prestige, and profitability of today’s home furnishings representatives.
The awards were presented to:
- Todd Weinstein was presented the Ambassador Award, for the best and most effective ambassador for IHFRA.
- Ted Weisbach was given the Mentor Award, for the member that has done the best job mentoring other IHFRA reps.
- Mike Root received the Innovator Award, the member that has overcome sales obstacles with innovative solutions.
- Denise White took home the Trailblazer Award, for the rep that members believe has done the best job maximizing new sales opportunities.
High Point Exhibitions and Al Bolton, Managing Partner and IHFRA Member, sponsored the event and provided new Apple Watches and iPads as a part of the awards.
