Gabriele Natale named president of Lifestyle Enterprise
Thomas Russell -- Furniture Today, January 26, 2014
Natale has been with the company for five and a half years, serving as president of Lifestyle's Shanghai upholstery division.
He will continue in that role, but also assume responsibility for case goods, a role previously handled by James Riddle, company chairman.
In his new role, Natale reports to Riddle. He will merchandise the entire line and also help manage relationships with the company's retail customers.
"I am excited about having the whole company to manage," Natale said on Friday at Lifestyle's Forbidden City show being held in Las Vegas. "I believe we will be able to improve what already is a very, very solid foundation in the first place."
