ASHEBORO, N.C. — Klaussner Home Furnishings, a solutions provider to the home furnishings industry, has named current Chief Financial Officer David Cybulski to the position of president and CEO.
Cybulski has served as CFO since 2019 and brings more than 35 years’ experience in leadership roles with consumer-facing manufacturing companies. He has served as interim-CEO since July following the retirement of Terry McNew.
During his initial three years at Klaussner, Cybulski focused on strengthening the company’s financial performance and working closely with operations to increase throughput while improving quality. He also played a key role in helping Klaussner navigate challenges presented by the pandemic and the related supply chain disruptions.
“I joined Klaussner in 2019 based on its respected brand image, strong dealer network and domestic manufacturing capabilities,” said Cybulski. “In my new role as CEO, I look forward to working with our leadership team, dealers and suppliers as we continue to build on Klaussner’s legacy of innovation and customer service.
“We have unique opportunities to leverage our strengths in custom upholstery and U.S. based vertical manufacturing, while developing on-trend products to generate growth opportunities with existing and new channel partners.”
Prior to joining Klaussner, Cybulski served in a variety of leadership roles across various industries with a focus on manufacturing. His experience includes 10 years as CFO of Lenze Americas Corp., a developer and manufacturer of automated factory solutions, and served as vice president at both Kaz Inc. (now Helen of Troy) and EMD Serono.
Cybulski received his BS in accounting from the University of Hartford and his MBA in finance from Bryant University.
