June 2, 2017,
Joyce Kuo, business director, confirmed that Benton, group president, left the company May 26. She added that Ballard, who previously handled merchandising and business development, has accepted a position in the hospitality industry while continuing to do freelance product design work for the company.
Ballard was not available for comment.
Kuo noted that Benton, who was with the company since mid-2016, left on good terms. “It was purely due to a difference in vision related to the growth of the company,” she said. “We continue to be in touch, and we wish each other the best.”
Benton said that after just a short period of time with the company, “it was obvious our business philosophies and growth initiatives were not compatible, but we left each other on good terms.”
While declining to provide specifics, Benton said he plans to stay in the furnishings industry.
Kuo said that the company is actively seeking a replacement to fill the vacant positions.
