Gift for Life, a charitable organization for the gift and home industries, announced business journalist Warren Shoulberg will be honored with its 2022 Gift for Life Industry Achievement Award.
The award will be presented to Shoulberg on June 22 at the Gifts & Decorative Accessories’ Retailer Excellence Awards at the Dallas Tower Club. The awards ceremony coincides with the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market.
Gift for Life’s Industry Achievement Award recognizes overall excellence and contribution to the gift and home industry.
“Warren’s journalistic excellence in the home and gift industries makes him so deserving of this special recognition,” said Cole Daugherty, chair of the Gift for Life board. “His keen observations and analysis over the decades have been a catalyst for business leaders and companies to outperform expectations and to improve manufacturing, retail and wholesale.”
Shoulberg, former editor-in-chief for several business-to-business publications covering home furnishings retailing, is a regular contributor to The Robin Report, Forbes.com and The Business of Home as well as his own blog Warrensreport.com. He has guest lectured at the Columbia University Graduate School of Business, and he has been honored by the International Furnishings and Design Association and the Fashion Institute of Technology. He served as a Gift for Life board member for more than a decade, ending his term in 2017.
“I am just thrilled to be honored by an organization I’ve been involved with as a board member, supporter and just fan of for close to two decades,” Shoulberg said. “Besides my connection to Gift for Life, I also spent a chunk of my career with Gifts & Decorative Accessories, and I am a huge supporter of Jose Andres’ World Central Kitchen work around the world…not to mention he makes very tasty food.”
