Creative Office Pavilion (“COP”), a leading Herman Miller dealer based in Boston and New York City and Office Resources (“OR”), a leading Knoll dealer also based in Boston and New York City today announced their merger January 24th, 2022.
COP and OR have combined 60+ years of experience representing Herman Miller and Knoll and will now be operating as one company – Creative Office Resources (COR). The management teams of both companies will remain in place, including Denise Horn (CEO), Paul Fraser (COO) and Kevin Barbary (CMO).
“This merger provides us the opportunity to offer even more support and innovation to our clients,” said Horn. “While COR aspires to be the largest Herman Miller and Knoll dealer in the country, our primary goal is to be the best dealer by staying focused on providing customers with excellent products and services. COP and OR have always admired and respected each other and this combination allows us to be even better together.”
“With 25 successful years under our belt and having the experience to navigate the ever-changing industry landscape, it was clear to us that when Herman Miller and Knoll merged that COP and OR should do the same,” said Barbary. “COP and OR truly complement each other as we share core values, have exceptional focus on clients and strong manufacturer relationships,” said Fraser.
“We are thrilled that our long-standing partners, COP and OR, are bringing their dynamic, talented teams together to serve customers across the Northeast,” said John Michael, President of the Americas, MillerKnoll. “This exciting merger creates an even stronger industry leader and we look forward to a bright future partnering with the new Creative Office Resources.”
