CLAY, N.Y. — Raymour & Flanigan Furniture and Mattresses announced it has named Seth Goldberg as its next president.
Goldberg is replacing his father, Neil Goldberg, who has served as president and CEO since 1982. Neil Goldberg will now serve as chairman and CEO.
At the same time, Neil Goldberg’s brother, Steven Goldberg, and cousin, Michael Goldberg, who have been serving as executive VP, will become vice chairmen.
Neil, Steven, and Michael Goldberg will remain “actively involved” in leading the retailer as they continue to work with Seth Goldberg and his siblings Adam Goldberg, Shira Boschan, and Jared Boschan to “position the company for long-term success.”
“Since Seth joined us, he has made it his mission to learn every aspect of our business,” Neil Goldberg said in a release. “He has worked closely with teammates across the organization, fostering genuine relationships while earning the respect of our 6,000 associates.
