Home décor manufacturer Currey & Company has appointed Pamela R. Bailey as director of showrooms.
Bailey has known the Currey family for over 20 years, first meeting Robert Currey when he became a supplier for Crate&Barrel early in her career as a sales person at C&B’s first furniture store in Cambridge, Mass. As she continued to rise in her career, positions with C&B led her to Chicago where she worked with Brownlee Currey at the Oakbrook and Michigan Avenue locations.
Bailey’s earlier positions for C&B include area director of furniture on the East Coast based in New York overseeing Boston, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Washington, DC, stores; to regional vice president assuming responsibility for all C&B stores, cb2 stores and outlets in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut tri-state area. She then tackled product development and managing the design program for accent tables and case goods, which once again brought her into a relationship with Currey & Company.
For the past two years, since leaving C&B in 2016, Pam has pursued an independent consulting career in product development and design for overseas furniture factories, helping them to create showroom-ready designs, materials and finishes for their customers, as well as launching brands and collections within the U.S. marketplace.
Bailey’s duties for Currey & Company will include maximizing company sales growth and profitability through developing and supporting all showroom efforts. Senior Vice President, Bob Ulrich, said: “Pam brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our organization that will help support our showroom initiatives and staff.”
She will also assume top- and bottom-line responsibility for showroom operations. Bailey will model, reinforce, and further develop Currey & Company’s sales culture and standards with a particular emphasis on the company’s customer service philosophy and company culture.
