Ethan Allen hires Bradley
February 20, 2014,
DANBURY, Conn. — Ethan Allen Interiors has hired Dan Bradley, formerly of Furniture Brands International, as senior vice president, furniture group.
The new furniture group is part of a repositioning of the company's business units.
Bradley resigned from the company in December following bankruptcy court approval of KPS Capital Partners' bid to acquire the assets of FBI, now operating as Heritage Home Group.
Before that, Bradley was president and CEO of Ferguson Copeland, now Chaddock, and president of Baker, Knapp and Tubbs.
In a release, Kathwari said he was pleased to have Bradley on board.
"Ethan Allen is continuing our focus on ‘The New Eclecticism,' which adds fashion, color, and a spirit of mixing things up to our time-honored story of quality, value and style," he said.
"This leap from furniture to fashion is being very well received by our network and by consumers."
To accelerate the effort, Kathwari said the company is "repositioning our product programs into two major business units; an accents group and furniture group," the latter of which Bradley now leads.
