In this role, he will lead the cross-functional team that manages both the building operations and market operations for ANDMORE’s 17 High Point properties with a focus on creating a seamless customer experience.

After a successful comeback at the beginning of the year, a promising response is already emerging for the 34th edition of the world's leading trade fair for carpets and floor coverings. In addition to many exhibitors who have already participated in the previous event, numerous companies that were not represented in 2023 have also registered.

These latest introductions expand the company’s offerings with three high-value, on-trend looks that range from transitional solids to contemporary and modern designs.
