Scutaro to Leave Feiss-Monte Carlo
September 5, 2013,
SKOKIE, Ill.-Feiss-Monte Carlo President Maria Scutaro will be leaving the company as of Sept. 20.
Generation Brands, the parent company of Feiss-Monte Carlo as well as LBL Lighting, Sea Gull Lighting and Tech Lighting, requires its brand presidents work out of its headquarters here in order to work cross-functionally and most effectively, the company said. Scutaro, who has been president of Feiss-Monte Carlo for two years and with the company since she joined Murray Feiss in 1997 (with the exception of a four-year hiatus), has been based in Feiss-Monte Carlo's offices in Rye, N.Y. While Scutaro and the company considered having her move to Illinois, it didn't fit Scutaro's personal situation at this time, the company said, and it respects her decision.
The company added that the Feiss-Monte Carlo business will continue to operate with the same sales and operations team in place in the Rye, N.Y., office combined with all other business functions continuing to run out of Skokie. In addition, Greg Vandia, who was the president of Murray Feiss before Scutaro, will continue to serve as senior sales consultant through mid-2014 while Generation Brands seeks a new president for Feiss-Monte Carlo.
