Heath E. Combs -- Furniture Today, December 19, 2012
MANLIUS, N.Y. - Edward J. Audi has been named president of high-end manufacturer Stickley Furniture.
The title was previously held by his mother, Aminy Audi, who remains chairman and CEO of the family-owned company.
Edward Audi joined Stickley in 1991, holding a variety of positions in manufacturing, purchasing, engineering, design, customer service, accounting and human resources.
In 2007, he became responsible for the company's Manlius manufacturing facility and became president of the Stickley International factory in Vietnam.
"(It's) been my good fortune to have been mentored in the business by my parents, who dedicated their working lives to reviving Stickley and creating opportunities for our people to advance and grow along with us," Edward Audi said in a press release. "They've managed to do so with great passion and integrity, and I look forward to continuing in that tradition."
Aminy Audi said that during Edward's tenure, he has become familiar with every aspect of Stickley's business and worked in almost every department.
She added that his appointment provides continuity and builds on the strong foundation that she and her husband, the late Alfred Audi laid for the company after acquiring it in the 1970s.
