El Dorado Furniture‘s Chief Information Officer, Jesús René Capó, has been re-elected for 2020 as the President of the Home Furnishings Association after serving at that post during 2019.
“I am grateful for this rare and extraordinary opportunity to serve for an additional year – and I plan to build on the HFA’s successes of 2019,” said Jesús.
Throughout the previous year, some of HFA’s accomplishments under Capó’s tenure include the addition of 125 members to the association, 16 new program partnerships, a productive Washington, DC meeting with members of Congress, and the very successful Top 100 CEO Summit held in Pebble Beach, CA. For 2020, his goals include the continued addition of new membership programs, implementation of a new healthcare program for its members in 10 states, and the development of a unique training program with the goal of educating and improving talent in the industry.
Jesús is the second Capó, and only the 2nd Hispanic, to lead the HFA. The first was his brother Pedro Capó, who served as President in 2003.
The Home Furnishings Association, currently celebrating its 100 Years, is the nation’s only trade association devoted exclusively to the needs and interest of home furnishings retailers and provides educational resources, networking opportunities, special programs, and state and federal government advocacy for furniture retailers across the country with over 1,400 members representing 7,000 storefronts.
