Furniture World News on

The High Point Market Authority announced that Kimberley Wray, who has served as the organization’s V.P of marketing since July 2006, has tendered her resignation due to personal and family reasons. Wray will continue to fulfill her duties through June of this year.

"Kim joined our management team shortly after I came on board," said Market Authority President and CEO Brian Casey. "Her writing skills and deep knowledge of our industry have been invaluable to us over the past four years. Beyond that, all of us here at the Authority have enjoyed working with her, and we wish Kim the very best in her future endeavors."

"My tenure with the Market Authority has been exceptionally rewarding, both personally and professionally," Wray stated. "Under the leadership of Brian Casey, we have been effective not only in meeting our competitive challenges, but also in successfully expanding our outreach during an economic downturn of historic proportions. "

"We have already initiated our efforts to fill this position," Casey concludes, "and expect to have a new person in place sometime this summer. As the marketing plan for our fall 2010 event is already in place and our overall strategy encompasses our needs for the next couple of years, we expect a smooth and effective transition."
