Planned Furniture Promotions Names Duffey Western Regional Manager
Planned Furniture Promotions, Inc. (PFP), the furniture industry’s largest liquidation and sales event specialist, named Rick Duffey to the position of Western regional manager. He is responsible primarily for accounts west of the Mississippi river.
Duffey, whose experience in home furnishings spans over 30 years, has worked in both the retail and wholesale sectors of the business throughout his career. For 16 years, he rose through the ranks at the vertically integrated, California-based retailer Krause’s Sofa Factory, eventually serving as vice president of sales and training, as the chain grew from 12 to 87 stores. He has also held a sales management position with mattress company Serta.
Since 2001, Duffey worked for PFP in the company’s auction division. He reports to Tom Liddell, senior vice president.
“His diverse background in retail and wholesale, along with his experience at PFP, give Rick the knowledge and experience to ensure profitability and success at our client events,” said Liddell.
“It’s a privilege to be able to expand on my abilities with such a well-respected organization,” said Duffey. “I look forward to using the unique programs that PFP offers, which are different in significant ways from any other promoter. It will be gratifying to help our clients reach their goals for success with integrity, two important qualities that PFP is known for.”
