ASA Names Woman of the Year

The American Supply Association’s Alice A. Martin Woman of the Year Award was presented to Suzanne Chreene.

Delta Faucet Co. Senior Director of National Trade Sales Suzanne Chreene was recently awarded The American Supply Association’s Alice A. Martin Woman of the Year Award.

The award was given during ASA Women in Industry ELEVATE2022 spring conference in Louisville. The award recognizes women in the PHCP/PVF industry who have “a record of significant accomplishment within the industry and embody the character of the late Alice Martin. Examples of this include: embracing education and encouraging inventive ideas; promoting women within our industry; inspiring others through work and example; and being a bold leader that others emulate,” ASA said.

Chreene, current vice chairwoman of the ASA Women in Industry Advisory Group, has worked in the industry for more than 35 years, including for the last 20 years at Delta Faucet, where she has held various positions within the company’s sales organization. The ASA said Chreene also serves on the national board for HomeAid America and has served multiple years in a leadership role with ASA’s Women in Industry division.

“I am so honored to win this award that is attached to the amazing woman Alice Martin was,” Chreene said. “I met Alice briefly at the first Women in Industry event (in Chicago) and was so impressed by her presence, her experience, her innovation, her approachability and her sense of investment in the women at NIBCO and others in the industry. I wish I had the opportunity to know her better. She was advocating for women long before diversity, equity and inclusion was at the forefront of many successful organizations.”
