Industry Veteran Tom Burke Joins Tomlinson

Industry veteran Tom Burke has joined high-end upholstered furniture vendor Tomlinson as vice president of sales.

He is based in the company’s Thomasville, N.C. headquarters; and his work will encompass all four of the company’s divisions: Tomlinson, Erwin Lambeth, Directional and Carter.

The Tomlinson sales force reports to Burke, and he will work with the company’s current customers as well as developing new accounts. He also serves as an advisor to Rod Lambeth, CEO of Tomlinson.

Burke comes to Tomlinson from Theodore Alexander, where he was vice president of upholstery sales and was instrumental in helping the company develop their upholstery line. Prior to Theodore Alexander, he was vice president of sales for TRS Furniture & Textiles for more than 20 years.

“We are fortunate to have someone of Tom’s knowledge and experience join us,” said Rod Lambeth. “He not only knows all facets of the high-end market and what customers want in upholstery, he has high standards and exemplary ethics. He fits in well with our corporate culture.”

“Tomlinson has what I was looking for in a high-end upholstery company, said Burke. “The quality is superb, the styling exceptional and they have a stable of designers such as Barry Dixon and Michael Wolk who design relevant and exciting pieces. I’m excited about getting out and talking to customers.”
