HIGH POINT — High Point by Design has named two new board members.
Di-Ann Williams and Emily Mansfield are the latest additions to the board roster and will serve as secretary and assistant secretary respectively, replacing Stancil and Christen Wilson who held the positions since HPxD was formalized in 2021.
Williams is a furniture industry veteran, most recently as the president of luxury brand Scarborough House for 14 years. She also is past president of the High Point Showroom Assn., which merged with HPxD in 2021; serves as chair of Women In Motion; and is a member of WithIt.
Mansfield is a human resources specialist and ceramicist. Noting her skill at building and maintaining relationships across all levels of an organization, High Point by Design officials said that Mansfield’s “passion for organizational growth while fostering an inclusive and engaging work environment aligns with HPxD’s vision and values.”
HPxD board officers Tom Van Dessel (president), Cass Key (vice president), Frank Leyon (membership) and Jack Hendrix (treasurer) will continue in their roles.
High Point by Design is a 501(c)6 organization that envisions High Point as a year-round hub for design and creativity. Uniting industry flagships, brands, manufacturers, makers, artists and visionaries, HPxD promotes and shares the city’s uniquely creative ecosystem through design tourism, education, events, and community outreach.
