Zafferano America Announces Two VP Sales Promotions

New York-based Zafferano America has announced the promotion of Chris Collins to Executive VP/ Sales and Neil Fleisher to VP Sales/Lighting Division, effective immediately. Collins and Fleisher are seasoned veterans in the luxury home retail and lighting industries, respectively, and have proven themselves as exceptional drivers of the brand’s efforts to build a national sales force.

“Both Collins and Fleisher have been vital players on our team, helping to build a sales force that has generated tremendous success in a short time,” says Barrett Gross, President of Zafferano America. “In 2019 we introduced our brand, seeking to educate customers about the benefits of cordless lighting. Now, with the help of our outstanding sales team, the Zafferano name has become synonymous with cordless lighting, and our tableware and glassware divisions have demonstrated Zafferano’s growing presence in home design, as well as our core values — color and light.”

Collins has worked at Zafferano America since Fall 2022, launching the company’s new Tableware Division as the first VP/Sales & Marketing for Tableware. Collins’ deep knowledge of the luxury marketplace has helped the company develop new relationships in lighting, furniture, retail, and hospitality. Prior to joining Zafferano America, Collins served as President of Arte Italica as well as Vice President and General Manager of 7W New York.

Fleisher joined Zafferano America February 2023 as National Sales Manager, bringing with him 40+ years of experience as a retail/wholesale lighting industry leader. His expertise and relationships throughout the U.S. and Canada have proven instrumental in growing the company’s Lighting Division.
