Let me please introduce the FND Team…

FND is brought to you by industry veterans with the know-how and expertise to provide the content you need to grow and strategize in today’s digital business world. Both Lisa J. Kleinhandler, Editor-in-Chief and Cris A. Young, Editor-at-Large have the experience of digitally transforming their family owned and operated distribution business. Their love for the fastener industry, technology and marketing has led them to achieving two US patents for the industry’s first eCommerce experience platform “Product Genius Technology” specifically designed for fastener manufacturers and distributors.



Fastener News Desk was born from Lisa and Cris’ desire to change the “same-old” industry narrative to a more relevant and digitally focused conversation within the industry. Fastener News Desk has worked directly with all of the North American industry trade shows to promote and steer industry events and programs. They have spoken about digital transformation at several Fastener Expo’s and B2B ecommerce events.

Cris is a founding member and has served as President of Women In the Fastener Industry, as well as a position on the Fastener Industry Coalition (FIC) Board.

Taking risks and challenging themselves to a higher standards led them to walk on fire, literally! Ask them about it! Always looking to up their game, they most recently attended Tony Robbins’ prestigious Business Mastery program and continue their commitment to an industry they both were born into and love.
