Wray Leaving High Point Market Authority
April 30, 2010,
HIGH POINT, N.C.-Kimberley Wray, who as vice president of marketing for the High Point Market Authority helped modernize and restructure the furniture shows here, is leaving her position.
Wray, who said she is leaving for personal and family reasons, will stay on through June. In the meantime, the Authority said it will be looking for her successor.
"My tenure with the Market Authority has been exceptionally rewarding, both personally and professionally," Wray said. "We have been effective not only in meeting our competitive challenges, but also in successfully expanding our outreach during an economic downturn of historic proportions."
Casey said he expects to have a successor in place by the summer and that since marketing plans are already in place for the fall market, there should be no interruptions in the group's efforts.
