Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, August 8, 2001
Hendersonville, NC — The Manual Woodworkers & Weavers Inc. recently created a new position, director of licensing and media, and appointed new hire Don Greeson.
Greeson most recently was the owner of his own Adirondack chair manufacturing company, Odyssey Originals, in High Point, NC. Prior to that, he spent 12 years as creative director of advertising and marketing for Lexington Home Brands.
As director of licensing and media, Greeson serves as the contact for new licenses and manages the in-house graphic design department. He reports to John Lenihan, vp of sales and marketing.
In other news, the company has opened a new state-of-the-art distribution facility that is "literally four acres under one roof" in size, Greeson said. An extension of the existing facility near the main offices here, the new unit will serve as the site for distribution of the company's gift lines, including all textile products — tapestries, throws, decorative pillows, table runners and place mats and other products.
