White-Karp Joins HTT
Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, December 5, 2013
JENNIFER WHITE - KARP HTT - As part of its expansion into coverage of home wares categories, Home Textiles Today has named Jennifer White-Karp as senior editor. She joins the staff effective today.
She will cover hard bath, storage, cleaning and online retailing, among other home wares and retail beats.
For the past two years, White-Karp has been reporting on the housewares industry and attending trade shows on behalf of Gourmet Business. She has also been a contributing editor for other trade publications, including Home Textiles Today.
Over her career in business journalism she was an editor at The Real Deal, the real estate magazine, and spent five years covering home furnishings at HFN, where she was editor of the housewares section.
"I've logged many trade shows and can navigate most show floors juggling a note pad and Blackberry (never an iPhone, because I'm old fashioned)," she said.
"Jennifer joining us is a great addition to our staff and she will be enormously helpful in allowing us to expand into the home wares classification," said Warren Shoulberg, editorial director for the publication, which is changing its name in 2014 to Home & Textiles Today to reflect its expanded areas of coverage. "I've worked with her for many years and she understands the needs of the business reader."
