Boca Raton, Fla. —Last week, Hollander Home Fashions named John Doherty to the newly created post of coo, effective immediately.

Doherty will directly oversee day-to-day manufacturing operations and the IT department, as well as provide guidance on operational policies, procedures and new business initiatives.
