GREENSBORO, N.C. - Leather upholstery producer HTL International has named Stefanie Lucas president of its Domicil brand in North America and has added two veteran sales executives to the management team of its HTL brand.
     Lucas, who was president and CEO of upholstery producer Rowe Furniture until last year, will oversee Domicil's new retail strategy in North America, as well as management of the company's wholesale brands.
     She reports to Phua Yong Tat, group managing director and CEO of Singapore-based HTL.
     Lucas joined Rowe in 2003 and was president and CEO from March 2007 until leaving the company last fall. Earlier, she was vice president of global marketing for Reebok's Rockport division, and also held various marketing posts at retailer Chico's Casual Clothing.
     HTL also said it has added veteran sales executives Brian Einhorn and Gary Harmon to its HTL management team in North America. Both will have the title of vice president of sales and marketing and will report to Bill Pirtle, senior vice president of sales and marketing.
     Einhorn will head HTL's business development and market expansion for key accounts in the U.S., while Harmon will oversee market expansion in Canada, as well as the western and central regions of the United States.
     Einhorn, who has more than 30 years experience in the furniture industry, most recently was vice president of sales and marketing for upholstery producer Albany Inds. He earlier held a similar post at Berkline/BenchCraft.
     Harmon has more than 25 years of experience in the furniture industry, including stints at importer Hamilton & Spill and upholstery producer Jackson/Catnapper.
