Whitewood Industries

A conversation with Chief Executive Officer, Jorge Mata

Founded in 1982, as a manufacturer of ready-to-finish furniture, Whitewood Industries has evolved into a leading supplier of both finished and unfinished furniture throughout the US. In late 2017, the original co-founders, Jorge Mata and Rob Feibel, sold the company to its employees through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).

We sat down with Jorge to get his outlook on the industry, what he sees for the future of furniture wholesaling and the impact of selling his company to an ESOP.
