Furnishing the team: John Harris and Tiffany Shyu

We recently (and finally!) published the About page on our website to share our back story and team members. It was never a top priority for us to publish this page since we created this company to focus on designers and their brands, not ours. Well, it seems that we published it a few weeks too early because today we’re excited to introduce 2 new members of the Unbranded Designs family.

John Harris, Director of Business Development

John has spent the better part of the last 20 years in and around the furniture industry. After owning and running his own showroom in the Merchandise Mart for the past 10 years, he decided it was time for a new challenge. He comes to us to take on the major challenge of disrupting the furniture industry with a unique, innovative business model. John’s industry expertise will be instrumental in developing sales channels and partnerships and will also help the team make important decisions. Most of John’s weekends are spent juggling carpool and spectator duties with his wife as they shuttle their two aspiring sports stars between the soccer field, the basketball court, or the baseball diamond. John’s perfect day would start with 12 inches of fresh powder in Vail, CO and end listening to great music in a small venue.

Tiffany Shyu, Marketing and Social Media Intern

Tiffany is a student at the University of Chicago, majoring in Economics. She is passionate about social media and startup culture and has experience working with multiple early stage companies. Her marketing and tech focus will help us reach more customers and attract more community members. Following graduation this June and beginning July 2013, she will be working full-time at LinkedIn Corporation. Outside of class and work, Tiffany loves cooking and going to concerts.

We’re thrilled to welcome both of these great individuals to our team and excited for them to help shape the future of our company! Welcome John and Tiffany!
