Workplace Furnishings Names Jodie Ryndak President and CEO

Jodie Ryndak

An office furniture veteran with over 20 years industry experience, Jodie Ryndak joined WPF as vice president of dealer development in early 2016. She succeeds current WPF President Greg Nemchick, who earlier this year announced his retirement from the organization, effective April 30, after eight years as chief executive.

Previously, Ryndak served as vice president of business development for WPF dealer member Color Art Integrated Interiors in St. Louis, MO. She holds a degree in Interior Design from Illinois State University and is certified by the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDCQ).

“We’re delighted to welcome Jodie as WPF’s new chief executive,” commented Peter Kordus, WPF past chair and president and CEO of Building Service, Inc. in Milwaukee. “Greg Nemchick has provided outstanding leadership and direction to Workplace Furnishings over the past eight years and I’m confident we will keep the momentum going with Jodie at the helm.”

“I’m looking forward to building on the strong foundation of Workplace Furnishings and advancing it to an even more valuable resource for dealers going forward”, said Ryndak.
