Barry Bale

Office Environments, Inc. (OE), a Charlotte-based commercial furniture dealer, announces the promotion of their Executive Vice President of 15 years, Barry Bale to President, upon the retirement of current President, Cindy Cox. Bale states, “Cindy has served this company since its beginning and been an integral part of our Executive Team. She will be immensely missed, but I wish her the absolute best as she enjoys her retirement. I am excited to serve further and blaze toward a dynamic future with the OE family.”

Bale has been in the industry for over 30 years, half of which has been as a dedicated and remarkable leader to OE.
