Lexington's Haney Adds Rowe CEO Title
June 26, 2012,
MCLEAN, Va.-Phil Haney, president and CEO of Lexington Home Brands, has taken on the role of CEO of Rowe Furniture.
Both Lexington Home Brands and Rowe Furniture are owned by Sun Capital Partners. Rowe will remain an independent company with separate headquarters, manufacturing facilities, showrooms and sales organization.
Stefanie Lucas, the former president of Rowe, is assisting Haney and his team during the transition, according to a press release from Rowe, and "has expressed a desire to pursue other interests at the completion of the transition," the statement added.
Concurrently, Haney has named Bob Choppa president and Craig Spooner as chief operating officer of Rowe. Choppa was made senior vice president of Lexington's upholstery operations in May. Spooner, previously Lexington's chief financial officer, was promoted to chief operating officer in January.
"Rowe Furniture is a tremendous company with a great heritage, a company rich in talent and fortunate to have great dealers and industry supply partners," Haney said. "Our goal is to return Rowe to its industry-leading position of style, quality, value and service for which it is famous and to do this through exciting new products and merchandising programs."
