CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Carl Davis Jr. is the Sustainable Furnishings Council's new development officer and will lead a four-pronged strategy to increase the SFC's impact, reach and profile, the organization has announced.
"We are excited to have Carl join us in our efforts to bring awareness and improvement to the furniture industry regarding the health of our planet and our homes," said Steve Freeman, SFC chairman and vendor resource manager for retailer Room & Board. "Carl's experience will allow us to grow as an organization and help us fund our long-term initiatives."
"SFC is at the forefront of important issues facing the industry, consumers and our planet," Davis said. "It is a privilege to contribute to this work.
