Benchmark 2004

The Market Leader award honors an entire firm, not an individual. Candidates should be recognized by peers and consumers as dominant remodeling companies in their local markets. In addition, they must have achieved industry-best-practice status in at least one aspect of the remodeling business.

Anyone - a company owner, an employee, a peer, a consultant, a supplier, an association - can nominate a firm as a Market Leader.

The nomination form is available online. Forms are due by May 31.

The new class of Market Leaders will be recognized at an exclusive awards dinner at the 2004 Benchmark Conference, which will be held Sept. 12-14 at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside hotel.

Benchmark combines daily big-name keynote speakers from the wide world of business with panel discussions and small, interactive breakout sessions.

Designed for company owners and top managers, the 2004 program will focus on differentiation.
