Amy Storek has joined Italian furniture brand Arper as CEO of Arper Americas.
Amy will lead the further development of the company’s growth plans within the North America and Latin America markets.
Arper holds a strong presence in the Americas, due to having showrooms in New York (headquarters of Arper's US branch), Los Angeles, Chicago and Mexico City, and a production facility in High Point, North Carolina.
Joining Arper with over 25 years of experience in the design and manufacturing industry, Amy has worked in various positions for global companies such as Herman Miller, Vitra, and Haworth. Working most recently as chief revenue officer, Amy directed the enterprise for Pivot Interiors, one of Herman Miller’s largest dealer partners.
Amy's true passion and experience lie in design, and she has collaborated with some of the world’s leading companies and design innovators. She is dedicated to the environment and to mentoring through her volunteer work, both with youth programmes as well as the IIDA as a member of the International Board of Directors. Having lived in Italy, with an ability to speak the language fluently, Amy's time abroad has given her an appreciation for the authenticity, creativity, and quality that 'Made in Italy' has come to signify.
Amy says: “I am so proud to be a part of this incredible company. Arper has always sought to create meaningful and innovative designs, guided by strong values and a commitment to the environment. It’s an extremely exciting time to join Arper and to be a part of the global team leading this next stage of growth. In these changing times, we are seeing unprecedented transformation in how people live and work. Arper is well positioned to solve for the needs of its clients, now and in the future.”
“Amy Storek is a truly perfect fit for Arper,” says Roberto Monti, Arper's CEO. “Her personal and professional background, along with her leadership capabilities, makes Amy the ideal CEO to lead the Americas and to fulfil our ambitions to meet the potential of these strategic markets. Her contribution will also be of highest importance at group level, bringing in-depth interior design knowledge and market insights to our customer-centric and sustainability driven business agenda.”
