Circle Furniture’s Jessica Tubman Speaks at Furniture/Today’s Annual Leadership Conference

Jessica Tubman speaks to furniture industry leaders about her perspective on the future of the industry and how to stay ahead of the curve


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Boston, MA - December 12, 2013


Circle Furniture’s Jessica Tubman sat on the “Mastering the Transition” discussion panel at the Furniture/Today Leadership Conference last week (12/3 - 12/5) in Naples, Florida. Also on the panel was Becca Sudbeck of Nebraska Furniture Mart, Mark Mueller of Mueller Furniture, Will Daughtry of Badcock Home Furniture & More and Seth Goldberg of Raymour & Flanigan. The event attracted over 450 attendees, a record for this annual conference.


This year’s theme -- “Mastering the Game” -- included topics like today’s economy, retail trends and the presence of e-commerce in the furniture industry. Director of Business Development for Circle Furniture and up-and-coming industry leader, Jessica Tubman, spoke specifically to the future of e-commerce in the industry:


“We need to stop thinking about retail channels as either e-tailers or brick and mortar. The future of our industry is likely to be a hybrid model. Brick and mortar stores need to position themselves now with e-commerce strategies in order to succeed in the future. Having an e-commerce platform is especially important in being prepared for the Millennial consumer base.”


Circle Furniture is a family-run business started by Tubman’s grandfather in the early 1950s. It has since grown from a small shop in Putnam Circle (now Putnam Square) in Cambridge to 6 stores located throughout the Greater Boston area.
