The kitchen & Bath Business (KBB) “Person of the Year” competition honors those who are passionate, innovative, and influencing the kitchen and bath industry in a positive way.
This year’s choices run the gamut of working extensively with charities, giving back to their communities, writing award-winning blogs, educating their industry peers, and supporting the next generation within the industry.
KBB executive editor Chelsie Butler will be interviewing KBB’s 2022 Person of the Year Jeanne Chung, owner of Cozy Stylish Chic in Pasadena, Calif., at the KBIS NEXT Stage, Thursday, February 2, 2023, at 11:00 AM. The discussion will cover how Chung changed her track to get into the design industry, and she will also share details on her new showroom, which includes a Monogram Appliances Experience Center. The two will also talk about how Chung has been working with designers in her area on what she calls a “collaboration over competition” mentality.
