Vari, a workspace innovation company, adds another industry leader, Brian Trego, to its lineup of executives.
As the senior vice president of product development, Brian will lead product strategy and development from research to execution.
“Brian has more than 20 years of experience in different areas of product development ranging from product marketing to engineering. I know he’ll raise the bar as we continue to deliver the innovative and flexible workspace solutions our clients are looking for,” says McCann. “We wanted to find a servant leader that would uphold our values, coach our teams, and elevate our product line. Brian embodies all of that and more.”
Brian brings expertise in the furniture industry; an asset as Vari continues to innovate and remove the headaches traditionally associated with office furniture. Notably as vice president of HNI, the parent of HON and Allsteel, Brian implemented product strategies that drove growth and improved profitability.
“Vari is doing things differently, and that’s an exciting thing to be part of,” Trego says. “I am looking forward to being part of the company and continuing to innovate, elevating my team, and making an impact as we create workspaces that elevate people.”
Brian started his career as a product engineer at HNI Corp. with both Allsteel and HON. He held several management positions in product development and product management. In 2016, he was named vice president of product management and development at HON and most recently was HNI’s vice president of product for its eCommerce group.
Vari has assembled an experienced executive leadership team, with executives from Fortune 500 companies and private companies alike. The company currently has roles open and continues to hire in today’s economic climate.
