Reston, VA (PRWEB) January 22, 2013
At their annual Contractor of the Year (CotY) awards gala on January 12th, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry’s Metro DC chapter welcomed Mark Fies as the organization’s incoming president for 2013.
Fies, COO of Reston-based design-build firm Synergy Design & Construction, has previously served on the board of NARI Metro DC as treasurer for the past two years. As president, he will head up the organization’s board of directors, which governs the chapter in conjunction with Executive Director Joe Normandy.
The only trade association in the nation geared specifically toward the remodeling industry, NARI requires its members to maintain a strict code of ethics and observe high standards of honesty, integrity and responsibility in business. Among other requirements, NARI contractors, suppliers and trade professionals must be properly licensed, registered and insured, must make an effort to write contracts that are beneficial to all parties, and must employ fair practices in competition, advertising, and sales promotion.
As a co-founder of Synergy D&C, Fies is familiar with the responsibilities inherent to running a business, seeking and keeping happy clients, coordinating with trade partners and vendors, and the remodeling industry as a whole. “I’m honored to serve as our chapter’s president. NARI represents and upholds the same standards that our company was founded upon – quality, ethics, and sound business practices,” says Fies.
Members of the NARI Metro DC chapter are anticipating a prosperous new year. According to recent market research, the greater DC area is considered the best potential market in the country due to a high number of households who engage in large remodeling projects and the number of aging homes. According to forecasts, this area should see over 260,000 remodeling and replacement projects in 2013.
