SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Furniture retailer Raymour & Flanigan has named Seth Goldberg as the company’s new president.
With this move, Neil Goldberg, the company president and CEO since 1982, will become chairman and CEO. Steven and Michael Goldberg, previously executive vice presidents, will also now become vice-chairmen.

Seth grew up in this business and understands the importance of valuing each associate and treating our customers well. We are so excited to see him carry on our family legacy.”
