“We are enormously pleased to have Ira Felsen join us to lead our expansion of Telescope’s contract business throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico,” Kathy Juckett, CEO of Telescope Casual Furniture said. “His unique and impressive background in the contract market will be a valuable resource as we aggressively pursue the contract market. What’s great about his role is that part of his responsibility will include helping our retailers succeed in the contract market as well. His unparalleled understanding of the contract business will enable us to capitalize on what we do well and offer the products and services specific to the demands of the contract market.”
Juckett added, “While we are offering a different product line for the contract market, in combination with our current products, our customers will see the same attention to quality, durability and service we provide in our residential lines.”
