On March 9th, 2018, Decore-ative Specialties celebrated the retirement of William B. Shaw, Chief Financial Officer. When asked about his career, Bill stated, “It truly has been a joy working at Decore-ative Specialties and for the Lansford family. I will miss every team member I’ve had the opportunity to work with over the years.”
During the celebration, Eric Lansford, Senior Vice President, shared, “Bill is leaving behind a great team he has led and brought up. He has also provided a great transition for our next leaders.” Eric continued, “we know the day-to-day finances will be taken care of, but all your years of experience, your wisdom, and your friendship is going to be greatly missed.”
Bill’s 19 years of dedicated service, loyalty, and positive attitude has been an integral part of our success. Congratulations Bill!
A key figure in the success of Decore-ative Specialties has been the leadership of Jack Lansford, Jr. in the expansion of its products and capabilities, which in turn has influenced the custom cabinet market.
