“I am delighted we are able to incorporate Joe Ruggiero’s design inspiration and style into Woodard’s product offerings for the upcoming season,” Woodard President Dean Engelage said. “Joe has a proven track record in developing designs which do the one thing that is most important to both manufacturers and retailers – they sell.”
