Dave Charn spent almost 15 years traveling across the country to work on corporate turnarounds and develop strategic plans for the growth of emerging brands. He primarily focused on retail with roles at lululemon, Eddie Bauer, L.L. Bean, Harry & David and most recently Talbots as interim CFO and COO during an unprecedented business resurgence.

Ros Broughton grew up surrounded by builders, craftsmen, and woodworkers. His grandfather led a small team that brought the Hitchcock chair back into production, and because of this, Ros spent hours around his Connecticut home hearing stories about the challenges of furniture manufacturing and distribution. Many of those same challenges still exist today and inspired the design parameters of Fyrn Stemn.
