Forty One Madison's Brown to Retire; Veeder+Perman Named

NEW YORK-After 20 years--and over 40 New York Tabletop Markets--Deborah Brown Elliott, Forty One Madison's marketing and communications arm is retiring.

"On behalf of the Rudin family and everyone at Forty One Madison, I would like to thank Debby for her dedication, professionalism and creativity over the years," said Laurie Burns, senior vice president, director of Forty One Madison. "Her input and execution of Forty One's marketing has kept our great New York Tabletop Show on the cutting edge at all times.  We wish her much happiness and good health in her retirement"

Concurrently, Forty One Madison has named Veeder+Perman its public relations agency of record. This New York-based firm is headed by Mark Veeder and Esther Perman, whose combined 30 years of experience has helped distinguish them as a creative, strategic group specializing in home and design public relations.

"You'll see Debby and Esther diligently at work during the upcoming Market week," Burns said. "I hope you agree, we couldn't have entrusted this responsibility to better professionals, and that you'll join me in wishing Debbie well on her retirement and welcome Esther on board."
