JASPER — Mike Wagner has been named president at the Jasper Group.

In this role, Wagner will be dedicated to strategic growth and oversight for the company’s group of brands, which include contract furniture brands JSI, Community and Jasper Desk; and hospitality furniture brand, Klem.

“For several years I’ve been searching for a successor with a real passion for furniture, for people and with vast market experience in this industry,” said

Mike Elliott, who previously held the title, and will retain the role of CEO for a transition period and that of Chairman of the Board after.

Elliott added, “I grew up with this company. And after 40 plus years of leading Jasper Group, it was extremely important to me that I found someone who I trust implicitly to care for this business, our great people and our craft as much as I do. I’m certain that Mike Wagner will do this, and I’m confident he will be a great leader of this company for years to come.”

Wagner has more than 25 years of industry leadership and experience. Most recently, he served as president for the Kimball brand.
