Daniel Wood, BSI President


Jon Lancto (Big Fish Consulting) and Daniel Wood (Lurvey Landscape Supply) have been named 2017 MIA and BSI Presidents. Together they will govern the 2017 MIA+BSI Board of Directors and oversee the second year of the joint venture of MIA and BSI.

Wood commented: “I am eager to serve the Building Stone Institute in its second year of coming together with MIA. Looking forward, the combined association has so much value and opportunity to offer the membership and the natural stone industry. I have been extremely impressed with the passion and commitment to excellence within both organizations, as well as our combined commitment to make this the best natural stone organization in the world.”

Lancto echoed these statements, saying: “During the upcoming year, we will guide our combined association to further its efforts to educate not just our members but also the design community about the benefits of using natural stone. Staying true to our mission, we will advocate for the design community to understand the benefits and design possibilities of natural stone and give them the advantage of specifying the most beautiful material money can buy.”
