Architectural Woodwork Institute names program director

Former inspections manager Wayne Hintz was promoted to Quality Certification Program director, a new position that will focus specifically on the daily management of the Architectural Woodwork Institute's Quality Certification Program.

Hintz is a veteran of the woodwork industry with more than 25 years of experience, according to the AWI. He joined the program as a representative in July 2005 and took on the role of inspections manager in September 2009. In his new position, Hintz will oversee all aspects of the quality certification program, including accreditation of woodworking firms, certification of projects and the management and training of all representatives.

In addition, Ashley Goodin was promoted to inspections manager. Goodin is also a former representative. Most recently, he served as the program’s compliance auditor, working alongside Hintz to review inspection reports and answer technical questions. In his new role, Goodin will be responsible for the entire project inspection process, including the review and approval of inspection reports submitted by representatives.

“Due to recent efforts to expand the product offerings of the Quality Certification Corporation, there arose a need for someone to oversee our core product, the QCP,” AWI Quality Certification Program executive vice president Craig Elias said in a statement. “Wayne is the perfect choice because of his vast knowledge of the industry, the QCP and the AWI Standards.”

Both promotions are effective Sept. 1.
