International Market Centers (IMC) announced strategic modifications, including promotions, lateral moves and new appointments, to streamline its gift and home décor team which will be visible at the next year’s markets.

The changes will create a single unified team supporting cross-category leasing for permanent home décor floors at IHFC in High Point and permanent and temporary presentations in Las Vegas.

“We are maximizing team leasing efforts to take best advantage of individual category expertise,” said Bob Maricich, CEO of International Market Centers.

Lee Hershberg has been promoted to the role of Vice President of Gift and Home Décor, and will continue to report to Dorothy Belshaw, IMC’s President of the Gift and Home Décor Division. His team will include Boyd Tasker and Ron Radin, both Leasing Directors of Home Décor based in Las Vegas, as well as RJ Maricich, newly appointed Leasing Manager of Home Décor, who will be based in High Point, NC.

As Vice President of the Las Vegas Design Center, Paul Watson will work with Belshaw and Keith Davis to launch a merchandised and juried presentation of design-forward, market-time showrooms for the Summer 2013 Market.
