LANDOVER, Md. – Skip Labella, Closet America founder and president, announced the launch of Closet America University, a new training facility for designers and installers and the Closet America President’s Club, which is aimed at rewarding the company’s top designers.
Closet America designers and vendors attended the two-day launch meeting held in January at Closet America’s corporate headquarters in Landover, Maryland. According to the company, the event featured internationally known executive speech coach Gwen Resick-Rennich, who shared effective communication strategies for becoming a successful influencer.
