In fact, Meridien’s team recently worked with Maggie Aardema at Stanley Furniture to bring a retail project to fruition. “The store was in Moscow, and the shipping company that was handling the order was Meridien,” Aardema says. “I remember thinking, ‘Now isn’t this fun?’ Here we are in Wilmington and High Point, and between us, we’re helping a store in Moscow become a reality.” 55 Industry insider Kimberley Wray writes about the people, companies and trade shows integral to the home furnishings business. Almost 20 years ago, she relocated to High Point, NC, from Manhattan. She served as the High Point Market Authority’s vice president of marketing during the most critical juncture in the Market’s history, and was the first executive to be named to the position. Wray lives and works near the heart of the action, a few blocks from the High Point Market and the world’s home for home furnishings. www.wrightsvillebeachmagazine.com WBM World is Our Oyster
