Henricksen Hires VP of Sales for New York Office

Henricksen, a leading full-service contract furniture dealership specializing in the office, healthcare, education, government, senior living, and hospitality spaces, is pleased to announce the hire of Kevin Kennedy as Vice President of Sales in the company’s New York office. In his new role, Kennedy will manage, mentor, and grow the current sales force to increase Henricksen’s market share in the New York Metropolitan area.

“After learning more about the size and impact of Henricksen, joining this team was a clear decision for me,” says Kevin Kennedy, Vice President of Sales, New York. “At Henricksen, I’m looking forward to continuing my passion: mentoring and leading salespeople while reinforcing the brand’s position in the New York Metropolitan community and beyond. I look forward to serving as a key member in Henricksen’s growth plan, helping the brand thrive as an exceptional partner in the commercial furniture industry.”

Kennedy has over 40 years of hands-on experience working with contract furniture dealers in New York. Throughout his career, Kennedy has served as a Project Manager, Account Manager, Team Leader for national accounts, General Manager, and Executive Vice President of Sales at multiple prominent companies within the industry. He will use this knowledge gained from decades of experience to further Henricksen’s brand in the New York City market while working with manufacturers including HNI.

“I couldn’t be more excited to have Kevin join our team,” comments Keith Cooper, Principal and General Manager of Henricksen in New York. “We are excited to take Henricksen’s brand and presence in New York to the next level together. Throughout the pandemic, HNI has remained focused on the contract workspace. HNI has great self-identity as a brand, and they are making business decisions based on their clients’ needs. There is so much disruption in our industry right now, and as the largest HNI dealer in the country, Henricksen is in a great position for success.”

Over the past few months, Henricksen has acquired two companies to strengthen its growing business. In February, the brand acquired Tennessee-based furniture dealer Synergy Business Environments (now Synergy, A Henricksen Company). Most recently, Henricksen acquired COFCO (now COFCO, A Henricksen Company), a historically respected dealership with 75 years of experience providing contract furniture, refurbishing, and logistics expertise to prestigious clients in numerous industries throughout the mid-Atlantic and northeastern regions. This expansion of the east coast market will be especially essential to Kennedy’s role as he contributes to creating an unrivaled team of contract furniture sales professionals in New York.
