ATLANTA–Mary Sullivan Harper has been named to the newly created position of senior vice president of leasing for AmericasMart Atlanta’s Building Two permanent gift showrooms, following her more than 14 years’ gift franchise leadership. She reports to Dave Savula, executive vice president of leasing for buildings 1, 2, and 3, and 2 West Wing.
“Mary brings to our business a poise and perspective well suited to the diverse demands of the gift arena,” said Jeffrey L. Portman, Sr., president and chief operating officer of AmericasMart Atlanta and its AMC, Inc. parent entity. “She has earned and sustains the respect of her customers and colleagues through trusted counsel and decisive leadership across years of hard work. Her spirit and commitment shine through in every endeavor.”
Sullivan Harper began her AmericasMart tenure with responsibility for the sales, leasing and management of AmericasMart Building Two, primarily in the gift category, which anchors closely aligned collections also housed in Building Two, including home accents, stationery and tabletop. In March 2009, she assumed additional responsibility for the leasing of the tabletop category on floors eight and nine and oversaw tabletop’s restaging and repositioning as the Living and Entertaining center. She most recently directed the relocation of showrooms affected by the reconfiguration of the ninth-floor corridor, which opened in July 2011, and currently is managing the eighth-floor corridor reconfiguration scheduled to open in January 2012. Harper also played a significant role in the planning for and leasing of AmericasMart’s newest entity, Building Two West Wing, which opened in January 2009.
