Gary Cissell

Omaha, Neb.—Ronald Blumkin, president of Nebraska Furniture Mart (NFM), has announced that the company’s flooring division has undergone “a leadership reorganization.” As part of the change, he noted, Gary Cissell is no longer with the company.

Longtime employee and senior flooring buyer David Snedeker will guide the division’s day-to-day operations until a permanent replacement is named, said Blumkin. Snedeker will continue to “support the organization’s comprehensive strategic plan and position the firm for continued growth.”

No further changes have been announced at this time. Cissell had worked for NFM since June 1991. He also served as president of the National Floorcovering Alliance from 1999 to 2004.

NFM has locations in Omaha, Neb., Des Moines, Iowa, and Kansas City, Kan., and has recently announced plans to open a fourth store in the North Texas region.
