Michael Harris has been named President of Legacy Classic Furniture, a position that has been vacant since March of this year. “Mike has served Legacy well as Senior Vice President of Sales since 2006,” said Kevin O’Connor, President & CEO of parent company Samson Marketing. “He has always exhibited a real passion for our business, but most importantly he has provided strong leadership to the organization during the recent transition period.”
After graduating from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill, Harris began his career in the furniture industry as an independent sales representative primarily with Klaussner Furniture. He also held sales management roles with Palliser and most recently was president/partner at Kevin Charles Furniture before joining Legacy Classic in 2006 as Vice President of Sales.
“Together with Earl Wang, President of Legacy Classic Kid’s, I am confident that Legacy has the young and vibrant leadership required to prosper and grow the business for many years to come,” added O’Connor.
