“We are thrilled to have Wayne lead Nambé. Along with Wayne's business experience, he has a deep understanding of the Nambé brand and a passion for great design,” said Dan Hillenbrand, Nambé's chairman of the board.

Badovinus was the first CEO at Design Within Reach. He oversaw the modern design retailer for six years. He is also the former president and COO of Williams-Sonoma and former president and CEO of Eddie Bauer.
