Leisa McCollister has been named vice president of Marketing and will continue to oversee all marketing activities and initiatives, as well as taking a more active role in the overall management of OW Lee. Leisa has been in a marketing role at OW Lee for eight years after starting out in the customer service department.

Paul will continue to drive the product development process from conception to introduction and will take a more active role in some engineering aspects of the business. Paul has been at OW Lee in a management role for six years and has been designing furniture for OW Lee for over 14 years.

Leisa and Paul are the fourth generation of OW Lee, a family-owned and operated business since 1947. The recent promotions mark the first of the fourth generation to take an executive management role within the company.
