Restoration Hardware's Founder Moves to Sundance

Share this article:
Restoration Hardware chairman Stephen Gordon resigned from the company he founded yesterday to become the new CEO of Sundance Catalog Co.


Gordon helped build Restoration Hardware, Corte Madera, CA, into a multichannel marketer of home furnishings, bath fixtures and decorative hardware with more than 100 stores and a thriving catalog and Internet business. The company is expected to post revenue of about $500 million for 2004.


In July, private equity firms ACI Capital, New York, and Webster Capital, Boston, acquired majority ownership of Sundance, Salt Lake City, from Robert Redford in a deal valued at $20 million to $40 million. Redford reportedly remains active in the operation of the catalog.
