Brown Jordan Names New Divisional President

ST. AUGUSTINE, FL - Brown Jordan International (BJI), a leader in luxury furniture design, names David Kennedy a divisional president of Brown Jordan. Kennedy will lead Brown Jordan’s sales team, while being an integral member of senior leadership to help execute the brand’s new strategic vision.

Kennedy brings more than 20 years’ experience with leading brands in the design and furniture industries. Most recently, he served as vice president of contract for Design Within Reach, where sales increased four times during his tenure, and concurrently served as vice president of retail for Herman Miller. Prior to that, Kennedy was regional director for North America at DEDON.

“Brown Jordan is one of the most storied American furniture brands,” Kennedy said. “I grew up with it because my parents were collectors. The brand has persevered for 70 years because of its rich history and key strengths. Brown Jordan stands out because it designs and manufactures its own products and has innovation in its DNA, like being first to bring woven and parabolic mesh as categories to the US. It’s an exciting time at Brown Jordan, and I’m honored to help lead the brand back to its rightful place as the author of the outdoor experience and a leader in innovation and aesthetic.”

“Change is in the air,” said Gene Moriarty, president and CEO, Brown Jordan International. “David is a key member of the leadership team as we’re poised to take Brown Jordan to the next level. Our new strategic vision is to regain our roots as an authentic, luxury brand, while showcasing design that enables people to enjoy life’s moments. We’re excited to share more over the next few months.”

Kennedy also serves as industry chair on the national board of directors of the American Society of Interior Designers and is a corporate advocate for Be Original America, an organization committed to educating the design industry on the value of authenticity.
