Retail buying group CarpetsPlus of America has added a new sales region, headed by sales manager Joe Waid, to boost its membership growth in the southeast. Waid previously served for four years as the sales manager in CarpetsPlus’ Midwest Region.

“We are having an incredible number of inquiries about our group from the southeast, and we want to have a dedicated sales manager in the region to grow our membership here,” said Ryan Dunn, the buying group’s director of sales.

“Joe was our first choice for the position because of the tremendous success he has had growing memberships and servicing retailers in Wisconsin and Minnesota. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the newly developed region, and we expect the southeast to become our fastest growing area of the country.”

Woodstock, Ga.-based CarpetsPlus is a national flooring resource group that represents more than 300 independent flooring stores in 37 states.
