MityLite, a global manufacturer of award-winning, highly durable furniture products for the commercial marketplace, today announced it has hired the former founder and president of Lion’s Wood Banquet Furniture, Zachary Wright, as Northeastern Regional Sales Director.

“When we were thinking about the next strategic sales hire at MityLite, we knew we wanted a skilled sales and product development professional that would be dedicated to helping us continue to build an exceptional company, and had a proven track record of valuing customer success, transparency, and teamwork,” said MityLite’s CEO John Dudash. “As the former president of Lion’s Wood Banquet Furniture, an up and coming company player in the hospitality banquet and foodservice industry, we knew we hit a home run when we landed its leading sales talent and brain trust.”
