Andrew McKnight

Founder, Executive Director

It all started with a notion, in 1995, that the world is made a little better if you build a wooden boat. On this sturdy rock, The Challenge Program (now one of Delaware’s most successful construction training programs) was built.Andrew brings to CP Furniture two decades of experience, both as an accomplished woodworker and as founder and Executive Director of The Challenge Program. He is a LEED Accredited Professional and has extensive knowledge of green building technologies. Andrew has often been recognized over the years for his work in the community, receiving, for example, the 2008 Jefferson Public Service Award. In 2017, Governor Markell awarded Andrew the “Order of the First State” for his “meritorious service to the citizens of Delaware.”
