Edwards completes senior advisory role at Chaddock
August 31, 2017,
MORGANTON, N.C. - David Edwards, a 27-year veteran of high end domestic case goods manufacturer Guy Chaddock, which is part of the current North Carolina-based Chaddock, is stepping down from a senior advisory role he has had with company over the past 13 years.
Edwards said that his last day in the job was Aug. 31, effectively ending an official role he has had with the company since it was purchased by the former Ferguson Copeland in 2004.
Edwards said that he had worked for the company in Los Angeles, Bakersfield and Morganton, N.C., which he had visited over the past week.
Over the years, Edwards and his team of employees, some of whom made the move from California to North Carolina and are still with the company after more than 30 years, helped Guy Chaddock develop a reputation for excellence in solid wood case goods construction and finishing.
Guy Chaddock finishes in particular have been viewed as some of the most expertly developed and executed in the industry. The quality of the line also was one of the reasons the former Ferguson Copeland decided to make the acquisition in 2004, when Guy Chaddock was threatening to close its doors.
Dan Bradley, president and CEO of Chaddock, said that the company has been preparing for Edwards’ departure for about a year, making sure the company has gained as much of his knowledge and expertise as possible as it makes the transition.
“Dave has been and still is a great ambassador to the company,” Bradley said, noting that his retirement is well-deserved. “He’s been an incredible addition to this company and has certainly earned it.”
