Jean Mignault, chief of strategic direction for design software provider 20-20 Technologies Inc., was recently inducted into the National Kitchen and Bath Association Hall of Fame.
Mignault founded 20-20 in 1987, introducing an alternative to pen and paper, improving efficiency through his revolutionary design software and forever changing the way contemporary designers work, according to the trade group.
“It’s not every day that you receive an award that honors your life’s work and so I feel privileged to have been chosen to receive this award from the NKBA. I am grateful and honored to be recognized, but more importantly I feel lucky to have had the chance to contribute to an industry that I have been passionate about for so many years,” Mignault said in a statement.
"In creating the professional software we now consider an industry standard and continuing to build on the products offered by 20-20 Technologies, Jean Mignault has left an indelible imprint on the kitchen and bath industry, along with the interior design and furniture manufacturing industries. His contributions have forever opened the door to a new level of innovation,” NKBA president Alan W. Zielinski added.
