GHTA opens nominations for Young Executive of the Year Award

The Gift and Home Trade Association (GHTA), an industry non-profit trade association, opened nominations for the fourth Annual Chad Corzine Young Gift & Home Executive Award.

The industry lost a dear friend to many when Corzine died in May 2021. Corzine cofounded Young Gift Executives (YGE) in 2014 with the intent to give a voice to young industry leaders without a seat at the table. YGE soon merged with GHTA in 2015 and as a result saw an influx of young executives attending conferences, becoming board members, and becoming vocal leaders in our industry. Now, the YGE name isn’t as recognizable today, but without this start the young leaders in our industry may not have the voice, they do today to carry us to tomorrow.

The fourth annual Chad Corzine Young Gift & Home Executive of the Year will honor Corzine’s name and recognize an up and coming executive in our industry.

The Chad Corzine Young Gift & Home Executive of the Year will be awarded to an individual who demonstrates the following qualities:

  • A passion for this industry
  • A passion for their business
  • One that you recognize as a future leader in this industry
  • Under the age of 35

The form for nominations can be found on the homepage of

Please return completed nominations by July 31 to and

Nominees do not need to be a current member of GHTA and may belong to any vendor, representative or allied group in the industry.

The winner will be announced at the GHTA 2024 Conference in Charleston.
