WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-GLM has promoted Michelle Karol to the position of sales manager for NY Now Handmade--one of four product collections to debut at the summer edition of NY Now, the Market for Home & Lifestyle (formerly the New York International Gift Fair). Karol, a five-year veteran of New York's Handmade sales team, will report directly to NY Now Director Christian Falkenberg.
"Michelle was the perfect candidate for this position because of her depth of craft market knowledge and her long-standing relationships with exhibitors," said Falkenberg, who is also senior vice president at GLM, which owns and operates the show. "Her recent involvement with the reorganization of Handmade will facilitate her direction of the collection now, and in the future."
