CHICAGO - Christopher Kennedy has stepped down from the position of president of Merchandise Mart Properties (MMPI), which owns New York showroom building 7 W New York and produces several gift shows around the country.
Saying he has enjoyed his tenure with the company, he added that he is "young enough to start a new career - and old enough to know how."
Kennedy will serve as a consultant to MMPI through the end of March 2012.
Mark Falanga, a 17-year veteran of MMPI, will take over as president, effective July 23. Falanga most recently served as senior vp, managing leasing, marketing and business development for several of MMPI's businesses, including commercial furnishings, LuxeHome, office, retail and art, plus heading up MMPI's acquisitions efforts.
In addition, Myron Maurer, who has been with the company for 24 years, is taking on the newly created role of coo, also effective July 23. He will oversee day-to-day operations of MMPI's properties in the United States as well as its consumer and trade shows in the United States and Canada.
