South Mountain Hardwood Flooring has appointed Jack Bostwick as national sales manager.
A long-time wood flooring industry veteran, Bostwick was Bruce Hardwood Floors' first national training director. He was the force behind building Bruce’s national training center in Nashville, TN in 1987, launching several initiatives to train and educate distributors, retailers and flooring contractors throughout North America.

Additionally, he was Vice President of Wood Flooring Sales for LD Brinkman, during the period when it was the largest floor covering distributor in the nation. For the last five years, Jack has been VP of Sales and Marketing for WE Cork.

This allows distributors to customize a mix of flooring to meet their individual market needs," said Bostwick. "Very importantly, WEGO's financial strength allows for deep inventory stateside, providing a reserve for distributors along with facilitating a formula for success and strong partnership.”
