PHOENIX (March 12, 2015)-- Paul Johnson Drywall Inc. (PJD), is pleased to announce that its Compliance Manager Warren Townsend was named to “Generation Next: 2015,” the industry’s list of young leaders compiled by Walls & Ceilings Magazine. The publication, which covers business news, products and issues critical to the drywall industry selected young leaders, under forty years-old, who are making a positive impact on the construction and drywall industry. In the “Generation Next: 2015” feature, Mr. Townsend is recognized for his leadership on several innovative projects that are helping to shape the future of the industry, as well as his work as a compliance manager.
