PICO RIVERA, Calif.-Aico/Amini Innovation has promoted Martin Ploy to president, succeeding Larry Rinaldi who recently retired.

Ploy has been with the company for eight years, and held the position of executive vice president for the past five years. His experience in the furniture industry includes stints with RB Furniture, Benchcraft Furniture and Krause's Sofa Factory.

One of Ploy's first responsibilities will be to analyze and oversee the strategic realignment of the company, which will include making some key internal moves, as well as adding certain needed positions.

"With the huge success of the recent collaboration [with] Jane Seymour, we must stay focused on our furniture merchandising, presentation, marketing and greater recognition of our brand," Ploy said.  "We will need to expand our team ... and our thinking about taking our current momentum and using it as a springboard for achieving the next level."
