One of the most experienced people within retail, "Woody" began his career in the industry at the age of 16 when be began working for Barrows Furniture Co., Phoenix, AZ.Literally, he has served in every position imaginable within retail, from the warehouse to general manager.There is nearly nothing that can come up during the course of a day that would be "new" to "Woody".
After his internship at Barrows, where he learned the ropes by serving in various capacities in the warehouse, on the sales floor, in advertising, in promotion and within management, he was promoted to General Manager of that company's new store as they entered the Tucson market.He built Barrows-Tucson into the number one store in the market before being promoted again, this time as general manager of the flagship Barrows store in Phoenix.Under his direction, the store was #1 within their category every year he was there.
In 1980, he was moved to Houston, TX, where he was named Vice President of Suniland Furniture, the largest high-end furniture store in the world, at the time.It was regarded as THE furniture store in the United States.During his tour in Texas, he was also in charge of the sister company, Ellison's, Fort Worth, TX.
