The CEO of One Week Bath, Matt Plaskoff Named Winner of Fred Case “Remodeling Entrepreneur of the Year” Award
Gardena, CA, 9.17.10: One Week Bath CEO and Founder Matt Plaskoff was recently named this year’s winner in the coveted Fred Case “Remodeling Entrepreneur of the Year” award, otherwise known as the “Academy Awards” of the Remodeling Industry. One Week Bath was also recently named in Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Top 100 Brilliant Ideas” issue. These double accolades give Plaskoff and his work national recognition both inside and outside of his industry.
Plaskoff was chosen by a panel of judges from Case Design/Remodeling, Inc., Hanley-Wood and Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies. The judging was based on four principal criteria: business acumen; financial strength, community and industry involvement and entrepreneurial spirit.
Case Co-Chairman and Fred Case Award judge, Mark G. Richardson, CR, remarked that Plaskoff “represents not only entrepreneurial thinking but entrepreneurial action and in times like we’re in, an entrepreneurial spirit is more important than ever.” Adds Richardson, “Plaskoff’s entrepreneurial spirit raises the level of professionalism not only in his business but across the remodeling industry.”
Fred Case, Co-Chairman, CEO and Founder of Case is also very impressed with Plaskoff’s professionalism, drive and passion. “He runs a strong operation in a very competitive market and looks at running a business as much more than the bottom line.”
Plaskoff was the original lead consultant on the ABC hit series “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and is well respected as an industry expert. He founded “One Week Bath” as an innovative solution to the nightmares associated with remodeling by providing an all-in-one, custom remodeling service that consistently finishes on time and on budget.
