New York, N.Y.—Havwoods International has hired Sophie-Zacha Lameret as the company’s first North American showroom manager, for its showroom in New York City.

Lameret joins Havwood’s North American team with over eight years of experience in business development and brand management. In her role, she will create a strategic business development plan for the new showroom to help increase traffic, secure quality sales leads and propel Havwoods across the North American market.
