Office furniture manufacturer izzy+ has selected Kevin Kuske as its new president and CEO following the retirement of founder Chuck Saylor. Kuske most recently led the Turnstone brand at Steelcase, where he has worked since 1997.
Saylor, who founded izzy+ in 2001, will formally retire from his CEO role in mid-July. He is partnering with Kuske on a succession and leadership transition plan.
"I am delighted with Kevin’s selection as the next leader of izzy+,” Saylor said in a statement. “He brings not only great experience but shares our passion for empowering and leveraging people for growth.”
“Chuck has established a tremendous legacy and created a powerful brand with izzy+, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with him to build upon what he’s done and to bring the products and spirit of
izzy+ to even more people in the future,” Kuske added. “It’s my passionate goal to make Chuck and all the employees and fans of izzy+ extremely proud as we move forward.”
