One of Sioux Falls’ own Buhler, was selected as a Forty under Forty award winner for the Gift and Home Decor industry.

Each summer, Gift Shop® Plus, a resource for retailers that specializes in design and trend forecasting, recognizes and celebrates the most influential leaders in the gift and home décor industry through their Forty under Forty awards - one of the most sought-after and distinguished business awards for young business leaders in the gift and home décor space. This year, Gift Shop® Plus recognized Tawni Buhler, Sullivans’ Director of Marketing, as one of their “industry superstars.”

Buhler has been with Sullivans, an international distributor, and marketer of home décor products based in Sioux Falls, for just over four years.

“I’m so honored to receive this award. It’s been a year of monumental challenges and change - both nationally, and within our company - and this award speaks just as much about Sullivans and their impact on our global industry and astronomical growth seen this year as it does about my efforts. I am grateful to have been recognized by both my associates at Sullivans and my peers in the industry. I give credit to our leadership team who has the vision and foresight to consistently adapt and meet the needs of a fast-paced and changing retail environment.”
