Amini Innovation Corp. has promoted Gabriel Duran to vice president of marketing.
AICO, a luxury home furnishings source based in Pico Rivera, California, said Duran has been a valuable member of the AICO team for the past 19 years, progressing in a variety of roles. Duran is working on the development of the brand’s digital ecosystem, from an overhaul of its website and social and email marketing to the creation of digital catalogs and business-to-business e-commerce tools. Duran will also handle media relations, a duty previously held by Keith Du Ross, who left the company at the end of January.
“Gabriel’s positive, forward-thinking and innovative vision works particularly well at a company like AICO, known first and foremost for innovation, “said Michael Amini, AICO chair, CEO and founder. “He possesses the ideal combination of knowledge, passion, vision and experience to take our marketing efforts to exciting new levels.”
“We’re fortunate to have someone in our organization of Gabriel’s caliber,” said David Koehler, AICO president. “I’m confident that his energy, creativity, and intense focus will enable us to achieve our marketing goals moving forward.”
