WithIt Announces New Board of Governor Appointments

GREENSBORO, N.C.-WithIt has named two new members to its board of governors: Doug Bassett, chief operating officer, Vaughn-Bassett Furniture Company, and Steve Elton, vice president of sales and marketing, Brown Jordan.

WithIt's mission is to strengthen opportunity for female executives in the home and furnishings industries. WithIt Governors build awareness about and advocate on behalf of WithIt by making recommendations to the board of directors; providing access to professionals,  resources and business networks; and serving on a task force. Each governor commits to a suggested three-year term; the board of governors meet three times a year at times and locations designated at the start of each calendar year.

As WithIt expands its presence in new industry segments, including bedding, and burgeoning regions, the non-profit is accepting additional candidates to serve on its board. "We welcome inquiries from executives who understand the importance of our mission and will strengthen our service in diverse market segments and geographic regions throughout North America," said WithIt Chairman Board of Governors Stephanie Lowder, Rare Bird Creative.
