Mogens Smed, a leader in prefabricated interiors and former co-founder and CEO of DIRTT and SMED International, joins Nomodic.
We are pleased to announce that Mogens Smed has been appointed to our Board of Directors. Mogens is the former co-founder, CEO, and director of both DIRTT and SMED International, and is considered a pioneer of prefabricated interior construction in North America.
Under his guidance, SMED International grew into a publicly traded modular interior construction company with over $300 million in annual revenue before being bought by Haworth Inc. in 2003. DIRTT (Doing It Right This Time), a company co-founded by Mogens in 2005, was listed in the top ten of Alberta Venture magazine’s 2010 and 2011 Fast Growth Companies over $25 million. In its 14-year history, DIRTT has become a leader in prefab interiors, and has completed thousands of projects worldwide for a variety of sectors, including hospitality, healthcare, and education. His latest venture is Falkbuilt, a company that plans to build interiors using alternative forms of fabricated construction materials.
In 40 years of industry experience, Mogens has demonstrated innovation and a commitment to the environment. He was named Environmental Champion by Interiors & Sources magazine in 2004 for his drive to prevent corporations from wasteful excess while building interiors. In 2013, Mogens was named EY Prairies 2013 Entrepreneur of the Year in the Clean-tech category.
The addition of Mogens to our Board ensures that we are committed to continued innovation and excellence in permanent offsite construction.
