New York designer and furniture designer Adam Sowinski says he will not return to his previous role as chairman of his company’s board of directors.
He has been CEO since last summer.
In a post on Medium, Sowinsky says he made the decision to quit to concentrate on his new project.
He says his departure will leave him with no choice but to continue with his business endeavors.
He did not provide any details.
Sowinkski’s post was on the company’s blog, but has since been removed.
“I’ve been a member of our board for less than a year, and we’ve done so much for the industry.
I am incredibly proud of our work, but I believe that we have a much bigger mission to lead,” he wrote.
“It is with great regret that I have decided to step away from our board.
I have been working to make the company stronger and I have tremendous respect for the many hard-working people who work for us.”
Sowinski also wrote about his plans for a new venture.
“In the coming weeks I plan to launch a new company, a furniture brand called Sowinks, to bring a brand of quality and luxury to our customers and to help the furniture industry to grow.
This will be a multi-year venture that will help us create the best furniture in the world.”
The post was written by Sowansky, who also runs the furniture boutique in New York, The Sowicki Collection.
He is best known for his furniture and other designer-designed pieces.
In his post, Sowsinski said he has been thinking about the company for “almost three years.”
“I am truly appreciative of all the hard work and dedication we’ve received over the years, and I am grateful for the wonderful opportunity we’ve been given,” he said.
“But I believe I have accomplished far more.
I know I have a great legacy to share.
I will continue to serve my community, and all of the wonderful people who have worked so hard to make this business successful.”
He also praised the company, calling it “a great team of artists, designers, and craftsmen.”
“We are honored to have such a supportive and passionate community.
Our community is a wonderful and diverse one, and there is something to be said for being able to work together,” he continued.
“The team is great and we can all see what a great business it has been.”
Sowsinkys company was founded in 2013.
