Kenny Wine, CCE Honored with Credit Executive of the Year Award
Coppell, Texas, January 24, 2020 – A once in a lifetime event occurred at the NACM Southwest Annual Meeting – Kenny Wine, CCE was left speechless. 
It is with great pleasure that we announce that Kenny Wine, CCE, Director of Credit, Southeast Region for Ryerson, Inc. has been honored with the NACM Southwest Credit Executive of the Year Award. This award is presented annually to an exemplary member whose outstanding performance and accomplishments over a number of years, has made an impact on the credit profession and NACM. 
More than a handful of years ago, Kenny found himself with a brand new opportunity in a brand new industry. What Ryerson, Inc. didn’t know is that Kenny would take them on an unexpected journey, elevating their company nationally and bringing recognition to the value and importance of the credit profession.
It wasn’t long before Kenny caught the attention of NACM Southwest and was encouraged to run for a position on the NACM Southwest Board of Directors; he continues his service today as NACM Southwest Vice Chairman and Investment Committee member. Kenny’s experience on the NACM Southwest Board of Directors proved to be invaluable when he began representing NACM members on a larger scale by serving on the NACM National Board of Directors. While on the National Board Kenny served on a number of credit-related committees, became a much sought after speaker, and eventually served as NACM National Chairman in 2018. Kenny attended the Graduate School of Credit and Financial Management where he earned his Certified Credit Executive (CCE) designation. 
Kenny is an unrelenting supporter of the NACM community. He understands the value of the community to raise the visibility of the profession and uses the community to further the success of his employer. From industry credit groups, to education and designations, to the NACM National Trade Credit Report, and NACM third party collections, Kenny encourages his team’s participation and contribution to the NACM community. 
Beyond his career, Kenny is an avid outdoorsman and golfer. He fondly jokes of his affinity for business travel while proudly sharing a family picture of himself surrounded by his family. 
The NACM Southwest Credit Executive of the Year Award recognizes and honors Kenny Wine, CCE as a member with vision and leadership in the credit profession.
