SADDLE BROOK, N.J.—Last week, Alex Peykar, principal of Nourison, was one of three honorees at the Anti-Defamation League’s annual awards tribute dinner. Peykar, along with Bob Maricich, CEO of International Market Centers, and Robert Levin, president of Levin Furniture, received American Heritage Awards.

The event was attended by more than 500 people and helped raise over $750,000 for the ADL. Kathy Ireland, who has a licensed rug line with Nourison, introduced Peykar at the event.

“I am honored and humbled to be presented with this award,” said Peykar. “The ADL has a long-standing history of fighting discrimination and protecting civil rights. All of us at Nourison are proud to be recognized by this incredible organization and are happy to further help this beneficial cause.”
