HIGH POINT — The High Point Market Authority announced the addition of two to its staff.
Mona J. Delia was hired as vice president of communications while Candy Baker was added as the new director of industry sales and promotions.
"I'm very excited to welcome Mona and Candy to the team," said Tom Conley, president and CEO of High Point Market Authority. "Their strong knowledge of the sales process, public relations and communications skills, coupled with the commitment to our exhibitors and attendees will be real assets as they contribute to the ongoing success of our industry."
With more than 25 years of corporate communications, public relations and investor relations on her resume, Delia will be responsible for all public relations and communications programs related to the April and October High Point markets.
"The Market Authority has created an excellent communications infrastructure," Delia said. "I look forward to continuing to build the High Point Market brand and enhance our position as the world's most important home furnishings event."
Baker, a High Point native with almost 10 years in advertising sales and nearly 20 years of experience in the home furnishings industry, will be in charge of sales initiatives for all market sponsorships and promotions.
"I'm looking forward to helping High Point Market exhibitors find new, innovative, and cost effective ways to reach buyers," Baker said. "With the range of opportunities we offer, I'm sure we can create individualized programs that offer the very best avenues for exhibitors' marketing investments."
