Packer Named Walker Edison Product Development Director

Walker Edison has promoted Rich Packer to director of product development as it moves to expand its furniture line.

The ready-to-assemble furniture producer noted that Packer has over 10 years of experience in product development and marketing.

“Packer, a 2015 hire as a business analyst, has demonstrated a wealth of knowledge with foreign suppliers,” said Barrett Bushman, Walker Edison chief marketing officer. “After getting him on board, we quickly recognized his additional strengths in areas of product development.” 

Brad Bonham, Walker Edison CEO, added, “We have decided to concentrate individuals in more core roles as we are growing. Moving from a young, fast growing corporation where managers worked in multiple areas has trained our teams well. Now we are centralizing responsibilities because of our size and the impact that structure will provide.”
