2020 MHInsider Industry Awards

    2020 MHInsider Industry Awards
    MHInsider Industry Award winners receive a personalized, engraved "Crystal Home" award.

    In Recognition of the Highest Achievements in Manufactured Housing

    Commendable teamwork abounds in the manufactured housing industry, including from the organizations that honor great work in building communities, homes, and services that aid in the effort of high quality, attainable, affordable housing.

    MHInsider Industry Awards is a bit different than most award programs in that it keeps to the personal feel of our industry magazine. We built the publication on telling compelling stories from the industry. Often those stories have been about family connections as much as corporate strategy. So when it came to the awards program we wanted to launch, it was clear that we should honor individuals for the highest achievements in manufactured housing.

    Each MHInsider Industry Award winner profile is like an introduction, a small bio, and a peek into what drives the recipient to achieve at such heights.

    Our 15-member editorial board listed below assisted with selecting candidates for the 2020 MHInsider Industry Awards, and we pared the candidate list back from more than 60 individuals based in 20 states to a shortlist of 16 nominees for five awards. We employed the volunteer efforts of more than a dozen state and regional manufactured housing industry association directors to conduct a vote on the safe, and secure voting platform eBallot.

    So congratulations to all of the nominees and winners. Thank you for your dedication to high quality, affordable housing.

    Each of the MHInsider 2020 Industry Award winners will receive the personalized “Crystal Home” award chosen by our team.
