The past 15 years at ACC has been a rewarding and memorable professional experience. We wish Larry and ACC great success going forward as I believe the company remains in capable hands.

After 15 years of dedicated service, Mr. Chip Livingston, President of ACC, announced his retirement from ACC, Inc. While it is disappointing to see Mr. Livingston retire after all these years, his desire to retire is respected and his immense contribution to the success of ACC is greatly appreciated. Concurrent with his retirement, Leslie Livingston, Mr. Livingston’s wife and ACC’s senior buyer, also resigned. They will both be greatly missed and ACC wishes them all the best in their future endeavors.

Effective immediately, Larry Goldstone, Chairman, CEO and owner of ACC will take over management of daily operations until a new President can be appointed. Mr. Goldstone purchased ACC from its former owners, Michael Needle and Carol Israel in 2006. In order to maintain continuity at the company, and in the Santa Fe community, Goldstone remained a “silent” partner when it came to managing the company.

In his departing remarks, Mr. Livingston said, “The past 15 years at ACC has been a rewarding and memorable professional experience. We wish ACC great success going forward as I believe the company remains in capable hands. After all of my, and Leslie’s, hard work over our many years at ACC, we want to see ACC continue to be recognized as the finest interior furnishings and design stores in the southwest.”

Remarking on his newly visible role at the company and in the community, Mr. Goldstone remarked, “As the owner of ACC and now its newly involved CEO, I want to assure ACC’s customers, vendors and employees that ACC intends to honor all of its relationships, and to continue to operate in a ‘business as usual’ way. We hope that these recent management changes have no bearing on the valuable relationships that have helped ACC be so successful over many years.” Mr. Goldstone went on to say, “I am fortunate to be able to rely on an experienced and capable management and employee team. Collectively, the organization is deeply committed to, and excited about, the continued future success of ACC.”
