MICHELLE SAUER

BONNIE SCHMITZ

Passionate about interior design since youth,
Michelle Sauer learned the basics of drafting and space planning in high school and
earned a bachelor's degree in interior design from Drexel University. She began her
career as a junior interior designer six years ago at D'Asign Source, a
licensed architecture, construction, landscape architecture and interior
design firm housed in a 25,000-sq.-ft. showroom in the Florida Keys.
She is one of D'Asign's lead interior designers, working on multimilliondollar homes and is involved in estimating, design and contracting phases,
interior plans, material selections and kitchen and bath design.

As manager of design, trends and innovation for Masco Cabinetry, Bonnie Schmitz
monitors the pulse of the design industry,
analyzing kitchen and bath trends. She
gathers insights from sources inside and
outside the industry to forecast and develop
cutting-edge products. She's also responsible for research, analysis and
testing of product concepts in the marketplace. She received her bachelor's degree in architecture with a minor in art history from the University
of Michigan in 2013. Prior to joining Masco's product development
team, she worked as an architectural draftsperson and kitchen and bath
designer. She started pursuing an MBA at Oakland University this fall.

RYAN SMITH

Ferguson d.b.a. The Bath + Beyond, San Francisco

Ryan Smith has been in the plumbing and appliance business
since 2018, when he joined the team at Ferguson/The Bath +
Beyond in San Francisco. He graduated from the University
of the Pacific with a business degree and currently serves as

a showroom consultant focused on sales. He's a quick study,
especially on the technical side of the business, and knows The
Bath + Beyond system inside and out. He played volleyball in
college and gives back to the community as a volunteer coach for
a youth team in San Jose and is a self-professed foodie.

SAMANTHA SOUDERS

MARK STAPPERFENNE

After graduating in 2012 with a bachelor's degree from Virginia Tech's NKBAaccredited Apparel, Housing and Resource
Management Program focusing on residential design, Samantha Souders got as
much experience as she could - from designing to measuring through
the end of construction - applying NKBA guidelines, ADA guidelines
and LEED applications to clients' projects. She now works for Reico
Kitchen & Bath in Springfield, Va., where she sees projects through from
start to finish and is part of an internal Manage-to-Lead Program, whose
goal is to establish practices on how to make designing and selling more
streamlined and efficient.

Despite being born into the industry (his
mother, Maria, CMKBD, was NKBA's
2015 president), Mark Stapperfenne never
saw himself in the business. In 2014, while
employed in a different field, he helped
NKBA's Northern New Jersey Chapter with technical/AV services for
presentations, was recruited as a sales rep for a member company and
joined the chapter. He served on the executive board and became chair of
the Communications Committee. Stapperfenne relocated to Chesapeake
as general manager of Green Forest Cabinetry. After a year, he increased
sales by 15 percent, dropped workplace accidents by 85 percent, made
the factory OSHA compliant and greatly reduced backorders. He was
recently promoted to director of sales and customer success.
