Mr. Humann remarked, “I am honored to serve as chairman of a company with such a long history of integrity and success. We appreciate Clancy’s dedication to Havertys and many years of service as a director and chairman.”

"Phil brings a wealth of experience as a former chairman and chief executive of a Fortune 500 company. He has been a great asset to our board and will be a terrific chairman," said Clarence H. Smith, president and chief executive officer.

The Board also announced the promotions of Allan DeNiro, Jenny Parker, Janet Taylor and Randall Davis.
