Jessica Wasmer Northover

Steering Chair

Jessica Wasmer Northover has been a sales representative for Fabric Innovations since 2016. And working in the industry since 2007.

After growing up in the industry she went to work for her family business Wasmer Contract group while in College. After college she continued to work part time for the business while pursuing a career in Television Production.

Given the unsteady nature of that industry she found herself pushed more and more into hospitality sales. She eventually went to work with Innovations Wallcovering before moving to her current position at Fabric Innovations.

Through all of this she continued to help build the NEWH OC Regional Group once the OC Chapter dissolved into a regional group. Being a part of NEWH is very important to Jessica and she is dedicated to supporting and upholding the NEWH Mission of Networking, Scholarships and Education.

Jessica loves the Hospitality industry and could not imagine herself anywhere else. Plus with all of this responsibility, she is mom to two adorable little girls.

Christine Wasmer

Christine Wasmer

Executive Advisor

Christine is principal of Wasmer Contract Group a manufacturer’s representative with over 25 years of experience in the contract and hospitality industry. She holds a BFA in Interior Architectural Design from California State University Long Beach.

Venturing from design into contract sales in the early 1980’s, she found sales and marketing to be a great pairing with her design skills. Since beginning her own business in 1996, Christine has applied her experience, dedication to detail and commitment to her client’s needs to forge lasting business relationships. Wasmer Contract Group represents fine manufacturers of interior and exterior furniture.

Christine’s support of NEWH can be described in one word: Scholarship. Through her work on the Los Angeles Chapter board and on the board of NEWH Inc., she formulated protocol and procedures for the management of the scholarship program. Future plans include expanding the NEWH opportunity through student chapters and inviting the participation of premier educators by establishing an NEWH Educator’s Roundtable.
