HIGH POINT – Stanley Furniture CEO Richard Ledger has resigned from the company, after nearly three years in the position.
Ledger has a long history with Stanley. He was vice president of Asia operations from 2008 to 2016 and rejoined the company in early 2018 as CEO after having served as chief operating officer for Starwood Furniture, a wood furniture manufacturer in Vietnam that produced the Stanley line for a period of time.
“It was with a heavy heart that I announced my resignation as the CEO of Stanley Furniture,” Ledger said. “After being connected with Stanley for over 12 years, it was a very difficult decision to make. It has been a privilege to work alongside such a talented and passionate team. A team, which in my opinion, is an industry leader in its own right”
Before working for Stanley in 2008, Ledger worked with sourcing firm Outlook International. He has been in the industry more than 30 years, 23 of which he has been based in Asia.
Ledger did not reveal his specific plans moving forward, but said that he plans to stay in the industry.
Stanley Furniture President Adam Tilley was not immediately available for comment.
