HIGH POINT — Furniture/Today has named Susan Jones associate publisher of sister publication, Kids Today.
Jones, who replaces Don Wingate, has been part of Furniture/Today's sales team since 2002 and will retain her responsibilities as a regional sales manager at Furniture/Today. She will report to Kevin Castellani, president and publishing director.
"We are excited to have Susan bring her solid background in the home furnishings arena to Kids Today," Castellani said. "I am confident that Susan's strength in consultative sales coupled with Editor Jane Kitchen's acumen, will take an already strong Kids Today to the next level."
Prior to joining Furniture/Today in 2002, Jones was a regional sales manager for Home Textiles Today, also part of the Sandow retail group of publications.
In addition to bringing a solid understanding of business-to-business publishing, Jones also has a background in finance, having been an associate analyst of consumer goods with Davenport & Co. LLC, a Richmond, Va.-based investment firm.
"As the mother of two small children, my interest in the juvenile market is both personal and professional," Jones said, "and I am anxious to begin collaborating with Jane Kitchen and the Kids Today staff to take this title to new levels of excellence."
