This year’s Lunch with Leaders mentor is Stephen Riley!

More About this Leader:

The Home Furnishings Association is excited to have veteran businessman, Stephen Riley, as the next Lunch with Leader Mentor at the upcoming October High Point Market.

Stephen Riley was the Director of Furniture, Home Furnishings, and Floor Covering for Top 100 Berkshire Hathaway Nebraska Furniture Mart out of Omaha, Nebraska. As the Director of Furniture, he oversaw $900+ Million dollars in sales volume, 13 buyers, 20 support staff and a visual display team.

Before joining Nebraska Furniture Mart, Riley had more than 27 years of experience in retail, including as vice president of home textiles for May Department Stores in Los Angeles.

He has developed success and passion in merchandise planning, trend analysis, negation and strategic planning that he decided to leave Nebraska Furniture Mart and launch his own consulting company to help others find success.

Irv Blumkin, CEO of the Nebraska Furniture Market, called Riley “a great leader, a great mentor and a great teacher, we will miss him.” But you won’t, now you have the opportunity to talk one on one with Stephen Riley and pick his brain. Sign up today to be a part of this intimate lunch group on Sunday, October 20, 2019 from 11:00-1:00pm (limited reservations only).
