Carl Hansen & Søn adds Tracie Stearns as Sales Manager Southern CA
Carl Hansen & Søn is pleased to announce that Tracie Stearns now represents the 114-year-old manufacturer of iconic furniture from Danish design masters such as Hans J. Wegner, Kaare Klint, Børge Mogensen, Arne Jacobsen, Ole Wanscher, Morten Gøttler, Poul Kjærholm, and Frits Henningsen.
Tracie has 20+ years of contract design experience in sales and sales management. She worked at Steelcase and Coalesse in a variety of roles including sales support, showroom management, A&D sales, and major account sales, with more than five years successfully leading sales teams in the Southwest and Western Regions. Her passion for design, people and excellence has led to her success.
Tracie, who lives in Hermosa Beach, CA, left the industry in 2020 during the pandemic, to stay home with her kids to support them with distance learning. During that time, she obtained her real estate license and started a staging and design business. Her passion for quality design helped her secure both real estate and staging clients. She strives to achieve the best for her family, friends, and clients. Her extensive business acumen, industry knowledge, deep connections and integrity will pave the way for her successes at Carl Hansen & Søn.
“As Carl Hansen & Søn continues to expand its US presence, we are excited for Tracie to join us and represent our contract sales in Southern California. Her depth of experience, love of design and long-term relationship with our company are the perfect attributes that will build a greater understanding of our capabilities in new ways to the commercial design community,” says Sherri Simko, Director of North America at Carl Hansen & Søn.
Since 1908, Carl Hansen & Søn has distinguished itself around the world as a manufacturer of exceptional furniture, designed by masters of Danish Modern such as Hans J. Wegner, Kaare Klint, Poul Kjærholm, Arne Jacobsen and Børge Mogensen. Every piece has been crafted by skilled artisans in their workshop on the island of Funen, Denmark since the foundation of the company.
