First and foremost, Christine Gritzan has been promoted to our new National Director of Sales & Customer Service. Because our focus on Customer Service is so vital to our success and our partnership with builders, we felt that it would make strategic sense to combine these two positions. Christine brings years of both customer service and window covering experience to the team through her time at JCPenney and other companies.
In addition to this change, we reorganized our Sales Team and have promoted Heather Maloney and Barbara Wittels to Regional Sales Managers for the Carolinas and Florida markets, respectively.
Lastly, we are excited to announce that we will soon be offering our own proprietary shutter product. This new product will be manufactured by us specifically for the new first-time and move-up homebuyer. It will be available nationally, and because we will be manufacturing it ourselves, we will be able to bring our customers (both builders and retail) competitive shutter pricing and delivery times like you have never seen before. We are in the process of setting up our manufacturing facility now and look forward to offering new samples and pricing in the 4th quarter.
Through this growth, we are always appreciative of our builder and retail business and look forward to continuing to grow our customer base as we keep DRIVE-ing to offer the best window coverings and customer service!
