In 2019 David Fair took his skills as a career investment banker and strategy professional and applied them to a sector he's always been interested in: woodworking, cabinetry and design. The result is Third Bench, a holding firm focused on the cabinetry and millwork industries, which Fair co-founded.

As CEO of the Utah-based firm, "David is an expert in mergers and acquisitions, capital raising, and valuations. He leads Third Bench's financial management; analyzing suitable synergistic targets, managing the mergers and acquisition process, and identifying growth opportunities and operational strategies," says a nominator.

Even a pandemic couldn't slow this entrepreneur. Fair implemented strategic initiatives for operational efficiencies, introduced new commercial product lines, and announced plans to be a coast-to-coast provider of cabinetry and woodworking products before the end of 2021 through additional acquisitions.

"The entrepreneurial endeavor has had several positive impacts on the woodworking industry and will continue to have positive future impacts as we grow our company," Fair adds. Revenues at Third Bench have almost doubled since 2019 and "we project a climb to grow another 50% by 2021." They have also helped the turnaround of two companies from break-even to double-digit cash flow margins after implementing extensive operational changes, added employees, and "we are in the process of implementing strategic initiatives to centralize functions of our operations, creating synergistic optimizations that will make our operations highly competitive with other cabinetry operations."

"I am passionate to be part of the cabinet industry," the 36-year-old Fair adds. "I am passionate to continue to learn and strive for a successful enterprise, where my employees are excited to be part of the team and our customers are thrilled to work with Third Bench."
