Elrene hires new designer
Jennifer Marks -- Home Textiles Today, August 20, 2001
Elrene Home Fashions, based here, recently hired Judy Fishbaugh as its new designer for its table linen business.
Fishbaugh reports to Christine Ullman, executive vp, design.
Fishbaugh most recently worked as a design director at Town & Country Living, also based here. She has more than 10 years' experience in designing for home products, working for Glenoit, Burlington Industries and others.
In her new position, Fishbaugh works in all aspects of design and product development for both Elrene's open line and private label development. She will be responsible for both the vinyl and fabric portions.
Fishbaugh's position was newly created for the design department, which has recently been restructured to accommodate the company's growing and changing business.
"We are thrilled to have Judy join our design team," said Ullman. "We feel her years of experience in both technical and creative product development will bring a new level of expertise to our industry. Judy has been hired to help Elrene reinforce our place as the fashion-forward leader in the industry."
