MIAMI - March 24, 2021 - TUUCI, the Miami-based manufacturer of nautically inspired shade, shelter, and open-air furnishings, announces the addition of David Schutte as the organization’s new President. David’s tenure within the design industry and his well-refined leadership skills make him the ideal executive to fulfill the company’s worldwide strategic initiatives.

“Since our humble beginnings inside a small boat shop in South Miami, TUUCI has been transforming the shade industry and inspiring audiences around the world to reimagine modern, open-air living. We are thrilled to welcome David to the TUUCI family and to join in our journey of inspired outdoor living,” said Dougan Clarke, Founder, CEO, and Chief Product Architect of TUUCI.

Over the past 16 years, David has held four consecutive senior executive positions within Knoll, Inc., a $1.2 billion international furniture brand for residential, contract, and hospitality interiors. Most recently, he served as Executive Vice President and Corporate Officer, with full P+L responsibilities for five specialty divisions within the larger corporation. In that role, David developed a wide industry lens by leading businesses spanning residential to contract, trade to consumer, and brick + mortar to e-commerce.

“Over the years, I’ve watched TUUCI reimagine outdoor living with their fresh take on leisure space architecture,” noted David. “Combining art and design with durable, marine grade engineering, their products blend seamlessly in any environment. The TUUCI organization is incredibly devoted to making its customers’ extraordinary visions come true, whether in North America or around the globe. I am excited to partner with Dougan and the TUUCI worldwide team to continue that remarkable journey.”

Tom Parker, President of TUUCI since 2000, will continue with the company in a new leadership position as General Counsel, and will also continue to serve on the company’s Board of Directors. “We are pleased to have David join our company and lead us forward in new and exciting directions. I look forward to supporting David’s day-to-day leadership, as he and the team prepare TUUCI for a dynamic future,” said Tom.
