Reardon Out at Hickory Chair

Hickory Chair President Jay Reardon has been released  by Heritage Home Group, the entity formed by KPS Capital Partners to manage the recently acquired companies formerly owned by Furniture Brands International.

A call to Hickory Chair's North Carolina office revealed Reardon left the company Monday. Reached by phone, Reardon declined to comment on record at this time. A call to a KPS press contact was not returned.

Reardon had been at Hickory Chair for 17 years, during which time the company became an object lesson for domestic high-end manufacturing.

Terrible decision. The one Furniture Brands executive and company they should have left alone. Jay transformed Hickory Chair from a stuffy old furniture maker into an innovative company. They are an industry leader the others envy. Will they bring in an outsider who doesn't know furniture? That never works out well.

This is hard to believe. Hickory Chair will not be Hickory Chair without Jay. I hurt for all the people and the company he worked SO hard for! Not to worry Jay-you deserve better and it will happen!
