Easter shares insights at HFA’s Lunch with Leaders

Eric Easter at Lunch with Leaders

Eric Easter, CEO of Kittle’s Furniture, discussed the importance of establishing a positive company culture during HFA’s Lunch with Leaders at the Las Vegas Market.

Easter, a member of the Home Furnishings Association’s Board of Directors, said business success depends heavily on employee attitudes. When they feel a sense of ownership, and when they’re treated fairly and consistently, employees want to contribute to the company’s growth. A business can attract and keep the right people by developing collaborative relationships, Easter said.

Lunch with Leaders offers an opportunity for young professionals to talk one-on-one with a leader in the industry and network with peers in an intimate setting. Those who attended Lunch with Leaders in Las Vegas were Dustin and Rachael Cowell of Great American Furniture Warehouse, Joel Haimsohn of Lawrance Contemporary Furniture, Alex Wright of Wright’s Furniture & Flooring and Kristi Costantino and Marilyn Durning of STORIS.

Lunch with Leaders at the High Point Market will be April 8, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, please contact HFA’s education director, Kaprice Crawford, at 916-960-0346 or kcrawford@myhfa.org
