HIGH POINT, N.C.--Joe Carroll, the former long-time publisher of Furniture Today, has joined McNeill Communications Group as president of its newly formed marketing communications division.

Caroll retired from the magazine earlier this year after spending 33 years there, most of it as publisher. At McNeill, which specializes in the home furnishings field, he will oversee marketing and communications, including planning, advertising, public relations and social media.

"Joe brings unmatched relationships in our industry and a passion for putting together a creative marketing mix,"  said Karen McNeill-Harris, chief executive officer  of the company.

"I can't think of anything I would rather do more than contribute to the growth of our industry," said Carroll, who has written four books,  and has served on many industry boards and organizations.
