Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, August 30, 2013
TUPELO, Miss. — Davy Crockett is leaving Davis Direct after completing an 18-month consulting arrangement. Crockett is a 42-year veteran of the furniture industry and has worked for Kroehler, Lane, Leggett & Platt, La-Z-Boy and Southern Motion.
"Hunter Davis came to me right after I retired from 11 years with Southern Motion as vice president of merchandising and asked for my help with Davis' upholstery program," Crockett said. "The 18 months is up and my work there is finished. I've enjoyed the youth and brilliance that is Hunter Davis. I can honestly say that I have never worked with anyone as dedicated and street smart as this young man. He's definitely one to watch in the coming years."
Crockett said he has "too much energy and love of this crazy industry" to retire.
"I'm wide open at this point," he said. "My strength is creating something and enrolling a sales team to take off and run with it."
