Lisa Blecker
Director of Marketing, Resource Furniture

With more than two decades of design and marketing experience, Lisa Blecker leads the Resource Furniture marketing team, North America’s largest retailer of transforming and space-saving furniture.

Resource Furniture’s non-traditional marketing approach has focused on educating end-users and members of the trade on the benefits of flexible, efficient living, while providing funding and/or support to an increasing number of non-profit and academic initiatives that promote sustainable living and intelligent design. As a sponsor of the 2013 exhibition "Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers" at the Museum of the City of New York, Resource Furniture and Clei, s.r.l. designed and built the hyper-functional, 325 square foot micro-apartment, the centerpiece of the exhibition. As the micro-apartment project manager, Lisa spoke regularly about challenging the traditional floor plan and the increasing desire and demand for flexible, smaller-footprint living across all market and demographic segments. Lisa is a member of the board of Citizens Housing & Planning Council.
