Homefires taps Bud Edie

Area, accent and bath rugs supplier Homefires recently added Bud Edie to its staff, naming him to the new position of vp, sales and marketing. He reports directly to Edward Chu, president.

Edie was most recently vp of sales for Montgomery, AL-based Riverdale, a decorative pillow manufacturer, where he spent the past three-plus years. He will remain in Atlanta.
