Carnegie has promoted and hired several key players to its team, including:

Mary Holt, previously executive vice president of Creative at Carnegie, has been promoted to president of Carnegie Upholstery, where she will oversee the department and work closely with Chase Taylor, who joins the company as the new studio director of Carnegie Upholstery.

Holt served as the creative director of the upholstery division for 20 years prior. She will help guide the upholstery division’s strategy with design thinking and problem solving to meet new demands within the market.

Taylor will lead a team of designers, overseeing the design of all upholstery products. Taylor joins Carnegie as an experienced textile designer, following five years as senior designer at Pollack, and a role in editorial at Martha Stewart Living. Her perspective is informed by a strong art and design background that includes a Masters in Textile Design from the Rhode Island School of Design, and a year studying at Parsons School of Art and Design in Paris.

Additionally, Stephanie Powers joins Carnegie as the executive vice president of marketing and digital strategy. She recently led global web and operations for ad-tech giant Criteo.
