CULVER CITY, Calif.–Powell Company has named Jeffrey Wallner president of its furniture division.
It’s a new position at Powell. Wallner has been in the furniture business for 24 years, most recently with Philadelphia-based World Imports where he was the executive vice president.
At Powell, Wallner will be responsible for sales, marketing and merchandising.
“Powell’s Furniture division is back on a growth track and regaining the luster it lost under previous management teams run by private equity firms,” said Jim Ziozis, Powell’s CEO. “Jeff’s talents will drive Powell Furniture to the next level of providing dealers with excellent home fashions at outstanding price points.”
