SAN DIEGO — Jerome's Furniture here has promoted Megann Handley to director of merchandising, a new position at the retailer.
Handley will be responsible for the management of the buying department and merchandise plan. Her key focus will be on inventory controls, merchandising of goods, vendor relations and interdepartmental communications, the company said.
Handley joined the Top 100 company in 2010 as an assistant buyer and quickly took on additional responsibilities. In 2012, she was promoted to merchandising manager.
"Megann is a tremendous asset to both our department, and the company," said Andy Andreotti, the retailer's vice president of merchandising. "Her eye, her skills, and her passion all work together to create the ideal director of merchandising for Jerome's."
Jerome's operates eight full-line showroom locations as well as a clearance center at its distribution center. A ninth showroom is opening later this year in Torrance, Calif.
