Furniture World News on

La-Z-Boy Incorporated announced the appointments of Randy Huff, as Vice President of Merchandising, and Thomas Daley, as Vice President of Marketing, for its American Drew, Lea and Hammary unit.

Huff joined Hammary in 1995 and since that time has served in various positions of increasing responsibility. He was most recently the Vice President of Merchandising for Hammary and is now expanding that role to include American Drew and Lea.

Daley, a seasoned industry veteran, has worked his entire career in the furniture industry and was most recently the Merchandise Manager and Marketing Director for Carls Furniture & Design in Florida. His two appointments prior to that were as Vice President, Merchandising (Home Furnishings and Electronics) for Morris Home Furnishings in Ohio and before that as Executive Vice President at Breuners Arizona Home Furnishings.

Jack Richardson, President of American Drew, Lea and Hammary, said, “Throughout Randy’s tenure, he has been instrumental in the success of our merchandising efforts for Hammary and, drawing on his expertise, this appointment will allow us to strengthen and streamline our product development and merchandising efforts for all three brands under his leadership. Additionally, Randy is keenly aware of consumer trends, which will allow him to bring a fresh perspective to both the American Drew and Lea brands.”

Richardson continued, “We are delighted to welcome Tom to the La-Z-Boy family. He brings a wealth of retail knowledge and experience to our company and, this extensive background, combined with his intuitive sense of retail trends, will be integral to further developing comprehensive marketing strategies for American Drew, Lea and Hammary targeted at retailers and ultimately the consumer.
