Christopher Guy Appoints Paul Watson to Executive Committee

Paul Watson will join Christopher Guy Executive Committee March 1, 2013

 
PRLog - Feb. 22, 2013 - On behalf of global luxury furnishings brand Christopher Guy, CEO Christopher Guy Harrison is delighted to announce the appointment of Paul Watson to the executive team beginning March 1st, 2013. Paul joins Christopher Guy from the International Market Centers where he served as Vice President of Design. Paul Watson will work closely with current President, Luci Cremin, and on May 1st, 2013 will assume the role of President of the Americas. Upon his commencement as President of the Americas, Luci will join Christopher Guy Harrison applying her vast industry experience, having served as CG’s Global President, in the business development of a new business model to be rolled out in the first quarter of 2014.  

“I am absolutely delighted to have Paul on board, he is a gentleman and an outstanding business leader whose professionalism is beyond compare,” said Christopher Guy Harrison. “There has been tremendous growth at Christopher Guy over the past eight years, with Luci Cremin at the heart of this expansion. This is just the start of what we have planned for 2013 and 2014. In May we inaugurate our new HQ and 20,000’ showroom at the NYDC, that includes a fabulous new collection and a state-of-the art website. Paul will assume the presidency of CG America operations at the most opportune of times, and I cannot think of a more respected appointee in our industry to take over this challenging position. The knowledge, dedication and skill that Luci has used to build the global operations will not be lost. Instead this will be transferred to a senior executive business development position within the CG international group to develop and launch a revolutionary new concept and company during the first quarter of 2014. I am truly honored to have Luci and Paul committed to their new roles within the CG Group. “
