Accent furniture, lighting, wall décor and decorative accessory supplier Chelsea House has named Pam Cain president, effective immediately, after the retirement of longtime president Bill Cain (no relation).
Pam Cain has been associated with Chelsea House for more than 30 years first in an external marketing position, then as vice president of the company, and then in an internal marketing position when Wildwood acquired the company in 2011.
Bill Cain had led Rocky Mount, N.C.-based Chelsea House for more than two decades. His father Alvin Cain founded the home furnishings company 48 years ago. Bill Cain was responsible for all facets of the company through the years. He has retired to enter into the ministry on a full-time basis.
“We were so fortunate to have Bill and his expertise,” said Russ Barnes, president of Wildwood Home. “We wish Bill the best in his new endeavor and sincerely thank him for his leadership. With Pam working side by side with Bill for more than three decades, we feel well-positioned to continue on the growth path that Chelsea House has been enjoying.”
Bill Cain will remain as a consultant and product designer for the company.
