L.A. Mart Announces New Hires to Marketing Division

L.A. Mart®, Southern California’s most comprehensive collection of fine regional and national showrooms available to the trade professional, today announces the new hires of James Wilson and Victoria Rhea Harding to its marketing team, effective immediately.

Both Wilson and Rhea Harding come to the L.A. Mart with decades of sales and customer service experience as well as deep knowledge of the gift and home industry.

Wilson comes to the L.A. Mart from J.T.A., Inc. as showroom and key accounts manager where his primary responsibility was sales and client management, successfully representing more than 20 different furniture manufacturers. Prior to his role at J.T.A, he served in sales, customer service and merchandising positions with Christopher Radko, Richard S. Smith and Louis Vuitton.

Rhea Harding comes to the L.A. Mart from the California Gift Show where she served as divisional sales manager for the Jewelry Cash and Carry, Vintage and World Style divisions. During her tenure, she helped penetrate new markets while earning business and cultivated customer loyalty.

“James and Victoria bring not only a wealth of knowledge to the L.A. Mart but are both very well-respected in the industry,” says Frank Joens, senior vice president and general manager at the L.A. Mart. “Since they already have solid relationships with many of our gift and home showrooms, they can hit the ground running and help us continue the positive momentum of cementing the L.A. Mart as the premier shopping destination for our discerning west coast clientele.”
