This month's High Point Market will be the first for Tom Conley in his new position as the CEO of High Point Market Authority.

Conley was named in August as the successor to Brian Casey who left the HPMA in the spring. He has a long history of working with trade industries, most recently as the president of the Toy Industry Association. Some home furnishings industry members may remember him heading up the National Housewares Manufacturers Association in the 1990s.

"Tom is a good fit for us," said HPMA Chairman Kevin O'Connor of Samson Marketing. "One of his strengths is his experience in helping organizations focus on making their customers their first priority. He will guide us through the process of continuing to improve the business experience in High Point for market attendees."
