Gourley takes outlet merchandising post at Art Van
August 29, 2017,
Gourley is responsible for overseeing buying, merchandising and sales for all Art Van Outlet locations throughout the Midwest and reports to Kim Yost, CEO of the more than 120-store Top 100 company. He replaces Jodi FitzGerald, who left the company in July to join Houston-based Star Furniture.
“Craig is the right talent at the right time for Art Van Furniture during this exciting period of explosive growth at our company,” Yost said in a statement.
“Craig’s national merchandising expertise, incomparable industry knowledge and passion for products that resonate with guests have been honed for over 20 years, and are an unbeatable combination.”
Gourley said he is “ecstatic” about joining Art Van “at such a transformative time in its proud history.”
“The Art Van Outlet is a go-to destination for guests shopping for stylish furnishings at affordable prices, and we have big plans to expand upon this popular concept.”
