Harley Ashbaugh, Recipient of GenerationNEXT: Savannah’s Rising Stars of Business Award

March 6, 2013

SAVANNAH – AWD of Savannah is proud of its principal, Harley Ashbaugh, recipient of the GenerationNEXT award. Savannah magazine, Business in Savannah and The Coastal Bank honors and recognizes 21 area professionals each year as “GenerationNEXT: Savannah’s Rising Stars of Business.”

These under-40 individuals have distinguished themselves by their outstanding professional achievements as well as their philanthropic service within Savannah and the Coastal Empire. The winners will be featured in the March/April issue of Savannah magazine and the March 6th, issue of Business in Savannah. “A friend of mine said they were nominating me, but I was truly shocked to hear that I’d been chosen. There are so many fantastic young business owners in Savannah,” states Harley, “I am truly honored and humbled by this experience.”

Harley earned his B.F.A. in Interior Design and a Minor in Furniture Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in 2002. His passion for design and woodworking began in his father’s own workshop where he was taught the principals of fine craftsmanship.

Harley’s devotion and passion is paired with a solid business background, which he developed, while still in college, working for renowned Intermarine Savannah. Since 2009, under Harley’s leadership, AWD of Savannah has experienced unprecedented growth – transforming a small, local shop into one of the largest, premiere design and woodworking companies in the region. AWD’s work is in homes and businesses nationwide. His designs are regularly featured in design and lifestyle publications.

Harley is active outside of work as well, spending the occasional free time to walk dogs at the Humane Society. He designed, built and donated a custom piece for the Smart Women Cancer benefit auction.

Here’s a link to an article regarding the Generation NEXT honor awarded to AWD of Savannah, Inc. featured on the website.
