Q&A with Bob Ulrich; VP Sales
Layla Grayce: What is your name, title, and how long have you been with Currey & Co?
Bob Ulrich: I’m Bob Ulrich, VP of Sales. I’ve been with Currey & Company for 20 years.
LG: When and why did you decide to showcase your brand on Layla Grayce?
BU: I believe we began around 2005 with Layla Grayce. Unlike most internet retailers, Layla Grayce was interested in having a “point of view.” I really liked their concept of “merchandising” our product on their site.
LG: How have your brand and its style/offerings changed over the years?
BU: We are always changing. Outdoor furniture is at the root of our business 25 years ago (under the name GardenSource). Our initial designs were part of a significant licensing program (Bob Timberlake, Historic Charleston, Smithsonian, Winterthur). While these licensing programs were successful, they were also limiting in terms of design and product categories. Robert and Suzy Currey decided to expand the offering and create what is now Currey & Company. We quickly began to develop our “own” designs and expanded our product categories to include lighting and furniture. We continue today to evolve and expand our product offering to include lighting, furniture, upholstery, mirrors, and rugs. Within those categories, we continually strive to be on trends in style and color.
LG: Where do you see your brand 10 years from now?
BU: Tough to answer, but I believe we are on the right path to grow our product offerings, people, and remain relevant to our industry.
LG: What is your favorite memory working with Layla Grayce over the past 10 years?
BU: I would say the people that run Layla Grayce have been truly wonderful partners and couldn’t be more professional and easy to do business with over the years!
