In a company memo, the retailer noted the promotion from director to vice president "recognizes the important role that Ken has filled since he joined the company in 2009."

Under Bussell's leadership, the Top 100 company launched a new Art Van Signature credit card, building its circulation to nearly 250,000 cards today.

He also has been instrumental in keeping the retailer's financing costs among the lowest in the industry, the company said, "enabling us to drive business results with compelling finance offers." Bussell also launched a statewide program with Realtors to capture new furniture business as consumers move into new homes.

With the promotion, his responsibilities will expand to include several additional financial services programs.

"As we move into the new Chicago market, Ken will be working very hard to help introduce the Art Van Signature card to an entirely new market," the company said.
