Furniture World News on

Acknowledging the importance of continuity in a growing family business in an industry impacted by a changing global economy and manufacturing overseas, CORY Home Delivery is turning over day-to-day operations and responsibilities to the third generation of Cory leaders. Announcement of the restructuring of senior management was made by Joe and Jim Cory, CEO and President, respectively, whose father, Joseph Cory, founded the company in Brooklyn, New York in 1934. The transition to the third generation of family management places sons Joe Cory, Jr., 42; Kevin Cory, 40; and Patrick Cory, 37, at the helm of the company that serves retailers nationwide. All grandsons of founder Joseph Cory, the three men are industry veterans with diverse talents and backgrounds. Joe Cory, Jr. will now lead operations in the Southeast and Southwest; Kevin Cory will head up the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and Mid-West; and Patrick Cory will lead the company’s sales, marketing, and quality programs. “This represents the first step in our formal plan to transition the company to the next generation of family leadership,” says CEO Joe Cory. “Jim and I will remain actively involved in the business and guide Joe, Jr., Kevin, and Patrick in their new responsibilities. Planning for the continued growth and success of our company, as well as that of our clients, is essential.” CORY continues to grow at a rapid pace, adding new clients to its roster that include El Dorado Furniture in Miami and Bassett Direct Furniture in South Florida.
