“The opportunity to work with such a financially sound company that executes our goals of being a leader in on- trend product, while maintaining inventory and stock levels on both coasts to support this strategy is something any sales professional would envy,” Genova said. “I am excited about our future, having recently expanded our East Coast distribution center, and with the debut of our new flagship showroom this Fall High Point Market, we are poised and ready for growth.”
