NAPLES, FL (September 28, 2012) — Clive Daniel Home, the Florida-based upscale furniture retailer, and Lubner Group have recently announced the selection of proven financial leader and growth specialist David Soulliere as their Chief Financial Officer. In his new position, he will be responsible for overall business operations and leading the retailer’s growth and expansion into other areas of Florida.
Soulliere previously served as CFO of MGM Mirage Retail in Las Vegas, where he played a key role in increasing sales and profit of a $300 million retail operation for 200 owned and 100 leased stores serving a dozen resort properties. Soulliere comes to his new position with more than 20 years of diverse financial leadership, business planning and operations experience with Fortune 500 organizations such as Bath & Body Works, Frito Lay, Avon Products and Nortel Networks.
Commented Dan Lubner, President of the Lubner Group, (www.LubnerGroup.com) and Clive Daniel Home (www.clivedaniel.com), “Dave’s high level of experience with MGM and others makes him the ideal partner to join our expanding team. His work with major corporations has given him a wealth of knowledge in finance and logistics, making him a key player not only in daily operations, but also in future growth.”
Added Soulliere, ““I am truly impressed with the tremendous efforts the company has made in just a year to establish their brand. Their business concept is excellent, their quality products are uniquely presented and their growth prospects are exciting. The next step is to refine the business model so it can be scaled for measured growth. I am looking forward to helping take Clive Daniel Home to the next level.”
