Pulaski Furniture undergoes regime change

HIGH POINT, N.C. – Home Meridian International, parent company of Pulaski Furniture, announced Friday some changes in leadership between both companies.
Don Mitchell, president of Pulaski Furniture, will change his role to become senior advisor to HMI. He will report to George Revington, HMI’s chief executive officer.
Meanwhile, Page Wilson, currently vice president of sales at Pulaski, is being promoted to president of Pulaski Furniture. The change will become effective Monday.
The announcements were made via press release from HMI’s High Point. N.C. headquarters.
“Don has completed repositioning Pulaski to be an efficient design, source and marketing company that competes successfully in today’s difficult markets. It is much stronger in the marketplace today because of his leadership,” said Revington. “In his new role, Don will be working on strategic initiatives for all of Home Meridian.”
Mitchell said he is looking forward to the new role.
“I am excited about the change. I am always looking for the next challenge, and this one fits where I am personally. There are a lot of really exciting things happening right now at Home Meridian, and being able to help develop them from a more strategic perspective is what I like to do,” Mitchell said.
Wilson has been vice president of sales and marketing at Pulaski Furniture for the last two years, and has worked at Pulaski for more than 20 years. “Page is a good salesman and a good leader and, with his experience, is a great choice for president. He has been working hand in hand with Don and knows the products and customers.”
“Pulaski is enjoying momentum in the marketplace and I am thrilled with the opportunity to take it to the next level,” Wilson said. “The combination of Home Meridian’s low cost, efficient operating systems and Pulaski’s rich design and history positions us well for further growth.”
Pulaski Furniture’s former owner notified Pulaski town officials in April that all of the furniture company’s operations would pull out of Pulaski by August and be consolidated with HMI’s High Point, N.C. headquarters. HMI officials did not respond to attempts to get a comment on the exit from Pulaski.
The furniture company started in Pulaski in 1955 and had maintained some form of operations in the town for 54 years. It’s final production facility, in Pulaski and America, shut down in April 2007, displacing 260 local workers.
The company’s outlet store on East Main Street closed last fall.
The press release issued Friday indicates HMI was formed in 2006 with the merger of Pulaski Furniture and SLF (Samuel Lawrence Furniture). Besides North Carolina, it indicates HMI also has headquarters in China and Vietnam; and distribution centers on both coasts of the U.S.
There is no mention of the Town of Pulaski or Pulaski County.
