Dwell with Dignity Appoints New Board Chair
Dallas-based nonprofit Dwell with Dignity has appointed Jason Needleman as board chair of the organization, whose mission is to transform lives through design by providing and installing interiors for family homes and community spaces.
Needleman has been a longtime advocate for Dwell with Dignity and has been a board member since 2011. In his new role, Needleman will oversee Dwell with Dignity’s board of directors, ensure the board’s goals and objectives are met, provide leadership to the nonprofit’s employees, and more.
Needleman and his company, Peacock Alley, have been involved with Thrift Studio, the nonprofit’s monthlong fundraiser and home decor pop-ups, for many years as a sponsor. This year he will be a designer, creating a vignette showcasing donated high-end furniture and home decor pieces that will be available for purchase.
In 2009, Needleman took the role of president and CEO of the family-run Peacock Alley. Prior to Peacock Alley, his almost 20-year professional sales career enabled him to gain knowledge of sales, marketing, and general management. Since his appointment as CEO, Peacock Alley’s brand footprint has seen much growth. Peacock Alley currently has six retail showrooms, a thriving online business, and sells to over 500 retailers around the country.
