Ethan Allen Appoints Chief Brand Officer
DANBURY, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Ethan Allen Interiors Inc. ("Ethan Allen" or the "Company") announced
today that the Company has appointed Dave Moore as its Vice President
and Chief Brand Officer.
Ethan Allen continues to expand its position as a premier home
furnishings and design resource. "Ethan Allen has been here for over 80
years," Ethan Allen's Chairman, President, and CEO Farooq Kathwari
explains, "but we must do everything we can to make sure our brand is as
relevant today and tomorrow as it has always been."
To help, the Company has appointed Dave Moore, who has spent his career
creating iconic advertising for many of the world's most famous brands,
including AT&T, Sprint, Nestle, Johnson & Johnson, Exxon Mobil,
Motorola, Coke, and GM as well as Ethan Allen.
Moore joined Ethan Allen from Manhattan-based ad agency AFG&, where he
was Co-Chief Creative Officer. Prior to that he was Executive Creative
Director at McCann-Erickson New York, where one of his accounts was
Ethan Allen. He always hoped his path and the Ethan Allen brand's would
cross again. "I love interior design, I love the immediacy of retail,
and I love the culture at Ethan Allen," Moore says. "It's a perfect fit."
Moore also served as Chief Creative Officer at McCann Detroit, where he
oversaw one of the first-ever viral videos, the award-winning Tiger Trap
for Buick starring Tiger Woods, and created Pure Michigan, considered
one of the most successful tourism campaigns.
"I am delighted to have Dave join our team full time," says Mr.
Kathwari. "More importantly, I am excited for him to get to work helping
us take this great brand to the next level."
