ENFIELD, Conn. — Former furniture retailer Angela Edwards has joined liquidation and furniture sales event specialist Planned Furniture Promotions as senior account consultant.
She reports to PFP partners Roy Hester, Tom Liddell, Mark Bannon, Burt Homonoff, and Rob Rosenberg.
Edwards previously was vice president of sales and marketing for sales specialist Wahlquist Management. Before that, she owned and operated the two-store Aunt Zelda's Furniture in Georgia for nearly 17 years. She also was a marketing consultant with U.S. Broadcasting and was a stockbroker with Wachovia Securities.
The first woman to be an account executive on the PFP team, Edwards will work with retailers to "determine their promotional needs and develop the most effective, profitable, high-impact solutions," Tom Liddell, PFP senior vice president of sales and marketing, said in a release.
Edwards opened the first of her two stores in 1995 and over the years received media attention for its eclectic product mix, according to the release. The company received awards from Norwalk Furniture, ranking among its top five stores in the nation, and received Norwalk's Cornerstone Award in 2008 for supporting and reflecting company ideals and principles.
She also has served on the board of the Georgia Home Furnishings Assn. for the past 15 years and was the association's president in 2008.
