Mullican Flooring has hired Amber Oaks to fill the company’s new position of marketing and claims coordinator.

Hired as part of a marketing department expansion, Oaks is responsible for managing and tracking the Johnson City, Tenn., company’s new Gold Dealer Program, a special rebate initiative for Mullican dealers. She also manages sales incentives, the Partners in Profit program, all social media, online blog postings, and presentation development for executives and sales personnel.

“We are excited about having Amber on our marketing team and eager to apply her skills to upcoming initiatives and product launches,” said Brian Greenwell, Mullican’s vice president of sales and marketing.

Reared in Kingsport, Tenn., Oaks attended East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, where she earned a business administration degree with a concentration in marketing management. While at ETSU, Oaks completed requirements for a certificate from Northwestern Mutual’s Leadership Institute and also contributed numerous volunteer hours to the Johnson City Housing Authority and Komen Tri-Cities Race for the Cure of Kingsport, Tenn.

“I am excited to be working with a major hardwood flooring manufacturer such as Mullican, particularly in the handling of their social media, which is the exciting new frontier of marketing,” Oaks noted.

Currently located at Mullican’s corporate headquarters at 1109 University Parkway in Johnson City, Oaks will soon relocate to 655 Woodlyn Road in Johnson City – the site of Mullican’s new headquarters.
