Ikea has appointed Trisha Bevering as manager of its Memphis, TN, store slated to open in the fall of 2016.
The Memphis facility will be the 43rd Ikea store operating in the United States and the first in Tennessee.
Bevering joined Ikea in 1995 as a graphics coworker at the Seattle-area store in Renton, WA. Most recently, she was interior design manager of the Ikea store in East Palo Alto, CA.
“We are very excited about opening a store in Memphis, where there are many Ikea customers as well as others who may not know us yet, but are anxious for us to open,” said Ikea U.S. president Lars Petersson. “Trisha’s management experience and background in Ikea commerciality and sales more than qualify her to manage the future Ikea Memphis.”
