vice president of sales and marketing
Even though he is still under 40, Tom Zaliagiris is considered a furniture industry lifer. Currently vice president of sales and marketing at Sherrill’s Precedent Furniture division, he jumped into the furniture business immediately after graduating from the University of North Carolina in 2007 and hasn’t looked back.
He joined Precedent in 2015 as director of sales and was promoted to his current post less than two years later. Under his leadership, the division has consistently recorded double-digit year-over-year sales growth in the traditional retail channel and Precedent has become a primary resource to national omni-channel brands.
Earlier, he lived in China for five years as director of Asian operations for Leather Miracles and also spent four years sales representative for England Furniture and Chromcraft-Revington.
