Esquire Advertising Named 2023 Partner of the Year by the Home Furnishings Association

We are excited to announce our team, Esquire Advertising, has been named the 2023 Partner of the Year by the Home Furnishings Association (HFA) — receiving one of the most prestigious awards in the home furnishings sector. Getting recognized as one of the industry’s highest achievers is no small feat in a fiercely competitive market. The decision came after the company was judged by a panel of industry professionals on seven categories, including Customer Value, Company Culture, Innovation, Social Responsibility, Industry Contribution, Marketing, and Achievements.

When Hard Work Pays Off
Furniture retail is an enormous industry, with billions of dollars spent on marketing each year, but news travels fast when a retailer receives bad service. It’s an industry where a poor reputation can sink a business very quickly, and the gravity of winning such a high value award was not lost on our founder. Eric Grindley, CEO, expressed his gratitude by saying, “We are deeply honored to be recognized by such an important organization. I always wanted us to grow, but I wanted to do it in a way where we could always provide the highest level of service to our clients. That has not always made things easy, but I can tell you today that it certainly has paid off.”

This achievement is an honor which is highly prized by other members of the company as well. Esquire Advertising’s Corporate Communications Manager, Brian Dickson, added, “It’s always a pleasure attending High Point Market. Not only is it the perfect occasion to meet face-to-face with some of our most valued clients, but it’s also a great opportunity to build new relationships by interacting with so many incredible industry leaders. Attending spring market this weekend was a particularly special visit for us — knowing how hard our team has been working behind the scenes to earn the trust of our retail partners, and getting to watch Eric accept an award on all our behalf, was an extremely proud moment for me”.

Mark Schumacher, the CEO of the Home Furnishings Association, presented the award to Eric Grindley during an awards presentation at the Spring High Point Furniture Market on April 23, 2023. Several other members of the Esquire Advertising team were in attendance for the ceremony to witness their big moment.
