The International Home Furnishings Representatives Association has named Mike Massood and George Massood of MGM Transport recipients of the Pillar of the Industry Award. Criteria for the Pillar of the Industry Award is: To be an industry leader who has distinguished himself with creative work and effort to improve, enhance and benefit relationships among representatives and other segments of the industry. By his actions and deeds he has shown himself to be truly aware of the importance and security of the working representative. These attitudes, combined with one’s commitment to the home furnishings industry, one’s community and mankind, have earned him the title “Pillar of the Industry”. The Metropolitan Furnishings Association of New Jersey nominated Mike and George Massood of MGM Transport for this prestigious award. After Mike and George completed tours of duty in the U.S military, they formed MGM Transport Corporation. The two began to carve a niche in the furniture industry. They founded their business upon the same values with which they were raised. They treat their customers with honesty, fairness and uncompromising dedication to reliability. The brothers quickly developed relationships with many of the furniture industry’s leaders and began to actively support industry associations and endeavors. Their commitment to these organizations gave them great insight and understanding into the transportation issues that retailers around the country face. MGM has grown from a single-truck operation into the leading furniture carrier in the United States. The Massood family is involved in fundraising for cancer research at St. Joseph’s Hospital with its annual Massood Foundation Golf Tournament. MGM Transport also sponsors the St. Joseph’s annual hospital charity ball and a variety of other events throughout the year. In addition, MGM Transport is active in community service initiatives and emergency relief efforts. The company also donates its services during natural disasters. Mike and George Massood will be presented the Pillar of the Industry Award at the Twelfth Annual Furniture Industry Awards Gala on April 27, 2006. The Gala is sponsored by the International Home Furnishings Representatives Association and the National Home Furnishings Association.
