The National Fastener Distributors Association’s is pleased to announce the 2020 recipient of its Fastener Professional of the Year award is Don Nowak of Falcon Fastening Solutions (Charlotte, North Carolina).
The Fastener Professional of the Year award was created by NFDA to honor individuals and companies that make a substantial positive impact on people’s lives.

In his nomination of Don to receive this award, Mark Shannon of Tower Fasteners (Holtsville, New York) said, “Don has been a contributor to the fastener industry and its associations for many years. His career has been filled with a high standard of ethics and integrity, and he has led a company that has grown in revenue and stature over the years. Don has been a mentor to many (including myself) and is willing and able to share his sound reasoning and good business sense when asked.”
