Agio Adds Sokol to Team

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va.-Agio International has named Andy Sokol, a 27-year-furniture-industry veteran, as vice president sales.

Sokol will lead the outdoor manufacturer's newest initiative to make additional inroads and increase sales from traditional home furnishing retailers.

Most recently Sokol was with Macy's. He spent most of his career in outdoor furniture with Fortunoff.

"I'm excited to be joining the Agio team," Sokol said. "Agio leads the outdoor industry not only because it has its own design teams, produces a great product and provides value; Agio can execute the delivery of that product. It's the total package that's important to retailers."
