Starting the new year with a pair of heavy duty hires
By YSN Staff
BrandSource partner Legends Furniture kicked off 2023 by expanding its management ranks.
New to the whole-home resource is Mariano Tellarini, who assumes the dual roles of chief operating officer and chief financial officer. He joins Legends from Oxyfresh, where he served as president/COO, and brings with him more than 20 years of experience in finance and operations management.
“Mariano is an extremely important addition to our team and will give us the drive we need to be successful [in 2023],” said Legends president and owner Chris Dockter.
Also new to the company is former Lane VP Matt Sorensen, who was snapped up by Legends following the sudden shutdown of Lane parent United Furniture late last year. “We’re very excited to have Matt on board,” Dockter said, citing his extensive experience and expertise. “He’s a rock star, a great addition for us, and will fit in seamlessly with our management team.”
Sorensen, whose background is in upholstery and case goods, was named VP of sales.
Tolleson, Ariz.-based Legends Furniture manufactures a full line of home entertainment, home office, occasional and bedroom products in the U.S. and imports select collections from Asian factories to provide a wide range of styles and price points.
