NEWPORT NEWS, Va.-Kay Hughes is retiring as marketing director for Gallerie II, a division of C & F Enterprises, Inc.

Hughes' career spanned more than 40 years in the gift and home decor industry and included stints at Carson Pirie Scott & Co., Silvestri Corp., Wilton Enterprises and Holiday Gallery before she joined C & F Enterprises to manage the start-up of Gallerie II, the company said.

"When I graduated from college, I expected to be an apparel buyer," Hughes said. "My first job was in the Home Store and I never left.  I have no regrets, as I have had the privilege to work with many outstanding people in the gift and home decor industry, both in the U.S. and overseas and I am pleased to call many of them my friends."
