Bill Clossin has joined Franklin International as market manager for the company’s Titebond line of flooring adhesives and accessories.
With more than 25 years experience in sales and marketing at major flooring manufacturers within the flooring industry, Clossin has the expertise to advance Franklin’s ability to serve the needs of professional wood flooring contractors through product and market development, the company said. Clossin’s career highlights include serving as general manager of the education markets for commercial-carpet manufacturer Tandus. He also held the position of vice president of marketing both for Amtica International, a global manufacturer of resilient flooring, and hardwood-flooring manufacturer Harris-Tarkett Inc.
“Bill has the leadership skills, marketing experience and deep understanding of the flooring industry to help continue Franklin’s advancement as a leader in flooring adhesives,” said Nate Miles, senior vice president, construction division. “He is the strongest candidate we could have found to assume the responsibilities of market manager for our flooring products.”
Clossin assumes market management responsibility for flooring from Forest Driggs, who served as vice president of sales for flooring, specialty and HVAC markets for seven years. Driggs now is vice president of corporate development and planning at Franklin.
