Stanton Carpet has appointed two new territory managers. Kent Fawcett will cover Georgia and represent the Stanton, Royal Dutch and Antrim product lines. Joe Lewis will cover the Virginias, representing Stanton and Royal Dutch.
Fawcett has eight years of experience. He has previously represented Fabrica for Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama, and Nourison for Georgia and Alabama.
"In my career in this industry, I have seen Stanton lead the decorative carpet and runner segment with consistent growth coupled with smart, sound investments and look forward to contributing to that success," Fawcett said.
"We love Kent’s enthusiasm and drive to succeed. With Kent’s decorative carpet background, knowledge of the Georgia region, terrific relationships coupled with his total commitment to selling with a keen eye on service, he is ideal for this position. We are very glad to have Kent join the Stanton team and look forward to a long fruitful relationship,” noted Jonathan Cohen, Stanton Carpet's COO.
Lewis has experience in both the retail and wholesale sides of the business. He was formerly a representative for Mohawk Industries in Virginia for five years, and most recently owned Virginia Carpet and Floors in Midlothian, Va.
"Having been a wholesale representative and most recently a retailer, I understand the current struggles our customer faces and look forward to building on Stanton’s past success to expand this territory," Lewis stated.
"We are thrilled to have Joe join the Stanton team. His unique perspectives as a former retailer gives him instant credibility. Joe is totally motivated and will relate extremely well to the account base in Virginia and West Virginia, and will help us solidify and grow our position in these areas," Cohen added.
