O'Quinn, a former product manager for Young America and sales and marketing representative at Stanley Furniture, will focus on key accounts at My Youth, which is a resource for contemporary bedrooms targeting the school-age youth market.

“Ward brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the youth segment,” said Luigi Nocchi, president of My Youth. “His insight into the U.S. market will be a valuable asset as we extend our products into America.”

O'Quinn said he believes Imab Group is “well positioned to leverage their design leadership and operational efficiencies to present compelling values to American parents looking to furnish their children’s rooms. I am confident we can effectively utilize these areas of excellence to present contemporary products that appeal to millennials who have demonstrated an appreciation for modern and contemporary home furnishings.”

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
