North Olmsted, Ohio... Moen, the number one faucet brand in North America, is proud to announce Amanda Rivera, wholesale associate marketing communications specialist, has been selected as an honoree in the 2015 National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA®) 30 Under 30 Awards. Rivera, along with 29 other emerging professionals, will be acknowledged at the upcoming Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS®) being held during Design and Construction week January 20-22, 2015 in Las Vegas, NV.

Rivera began her career at Moen as a marketing intern and quickly advanced. It was during her time as Marketing Coordinator that she played a key role in placing Moen's MotionSense™ kitchen product in showrooms across the country. Rivera, who is bilingual, is also the driving force behind Moen's Hispanic trade initiatives and works closely with all Hispanic trade associations. In her current role, Amanda is also focused on supporting the builder and plumber channels through the creation of a myriad of trade focused marketing materials -- from direct mail to social media programs.

"Amanda is a forward-thinking team player who brings energy and fresh ideas to the table," said Laura Ostenkamp, marketing communications manager. "We are thrilled to celebrate her achievements thus far, and look forward to her continued success within the Moen organization and the industry as a whole."

The NKBA seeks to highlight accomplished young people dedicated to their business, and thought leaders within the kitchen and bath industry. While at KBIS, Rivera will join one of three young professional groups charged with gathering valuable industry trend information from a number of exhibitors, and presenting findings on January 21 at KBIS Center Stage.

"Throughout my time at Moen I've found the brand is much more than just faucets; it's about developing a deep understanding of how customers and consumers wish to experience and interact with these products," said Rivera. "I'm excited to join my peers in exploring what's new at KBIS, and examining what's to come for the industry. This is an exciting time to be in the kitchen and bath design space, and I consider myself fortunate to have an opportunity to be on the forefront of reporting on these developments."
