Blue Leaf Hospitality Continues to Serve the Hospitality Industry

Aug. 14, 2014

Firm welcomes John Taber as newly appointed hospitality market manager

Blue Leaf Hospitality is pleased to announce they are continuing operations following the dissolution of BLUECOAST out of their main warehouse and facility in Miami, Fla. Founded on more than two decades of industry expertise, Blue Leaf Hospitality produces casegoods, indoor and outdoor seating, upholstery, tables, and banquettes for the hospitality and commercial industries. The company also welcomes the return of John Taber to their executive team, as the newly appointed hospitality market manager.

“We truly enjoy working in the industry, and despite this being a time of transition for our company, we look forward to the future and what the remainder of 2014 has in store for us,” said Stan Shockley, CEO of Blue Leaf Hospitality.

John Taber, who brings over 20 years of experience in the furniture industry, will oversee market development and client relations, working closely to deliver quality product solutions that are sensitive to budget restraints and meet production schedules. Formerly a regional sales manager for Shelby Williams, and later the founder of Just Hospitality, Inc. where he served as an independent representative for various furniture manufacturers, Taber has extensive experience working with designers, architects, hotel and restaurant owners, healthcare managers, and timeshare operators.

“I met Stan Shockley 22 years ago and am excited to renew my relationship with Blue Leaf. Over the years I have accumulated a keen understanding of the manufacturing process and quality standards, from concept and prototype stages, to full scale production. I look forward to working with our clients to find the best solution for their design needs,” added Taber.

Blue Leaf Hospitality has created custom product solutions for numerous hospitality brands such as Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Marriott International, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, and Ritz-Carlton Hotels. The firm also just completed the final phase of production on casegoods for the Trump National Doral Miami and the Fairmont Southampton in Bermuda.
