Carol Wilkins is the Marble Institute of America's (MIA) new accreditation and special projects manager.
Wilkins spent eight years in the stone industry serving as senior conference manager for Hanley Wood (now Informa Exhibitions) from 2004 to 2011. During that time she championed the education program for StonExpo, Surfaces and Construct.
In addition to leading the MIA accreditation program, Wilkins will assist with MIA’s Women in Stone initiative and lead MIA’s planned launch of an online university which will offer classes for both the stone trade and the design community.
"[Carol's] familiarity with the stone industry is an asset as we prepare to surpass one hundred accredited companies, as well as offer more professional development opportunities to women in the industry," said Jim Hieb, MIA's executive vice president. "She is also a natural lead for the soon to be announced online university which will complement the vast array of face-to-face learning opportunities offered by the MIA at regional, chapter and trade show venues.”
