Ethan Allen Names Chief Brand Officer
"Ethan Allen has been here for over 80 years, but we must do everything we can to make sure our brand is as relevant today and tomorrow as it has always been," said Farooq Kathwari , Ethan Allen's chairman, president and CEO.
Moore joined Ethan Allen from Manhattan-based ad agency AFG&, where he was co-chief creative officer. Prior to his time there, he was executive creative director at McCann-Erickson New York, where one of his accounts was Ethan Allen.
"I love interior design, I love the immediacy of retail, and I love the culture at Ethan Allen," Moore said. "It's a perfect fit."
Moore has spent his career creating advertising for a number of brands, including AT&T, Sprint, Nestle, Johnson & Johnson, Exxon Mobil, Motorola, Coke, and GM as well as Ethan Allen.
Moore also served as chief creative officer at McCann Detroit, where he oversaw one of the first-ever viral videos, the Tiger Trap for Buick featuring Tiger Woods, and created Pure Michigan, a tourism campaign.
"I am delighted to have Dave join our team full time," Kathwari said. "More importantly, I am excited for him to get to work helping us take this great brand to the next level."
