The Rising Stars of 2021
As we close out 2021 and look ahead to 2022, it’s time to take a moment to recognize the leaders of tomorrow — the Rising Stars of the wide-format and signage industry that will shape the direction of this industry for years to come.
This year, we had nominations from a range of sources, and these five stood out from the rest. We recognize Madison Bailey, owner, SpeedPro Willmington (Delaware); Brittany Jacob, sewing and mascot production manager, Olympus Group; Preston Jordan, owner, Digital Precision; Shelbi Macfarlane, VP of sales and marketing, ProGraphix; and Andrew Smith, VP of sales, The Kennickell Group, as the 2021 Wide-Format Impressions Rising Stars.
