Before then, she held sales leadership positions in two consumer product companies in the food and beverage industry.
“We are thrilled to have Susan bring her talents and fresh perspective to our national accounts team,” said Jonathan Witt, senior vice president of Oriental Weavers. “Susan’s rug experience obviously speaks volumes and affords her the ability to dive in and make a considerable impact immediately. Additionally, the fact that we will be able to tap into her expansive sales knowledge and best practice expertise in general is even that much more exciting. I am confident Susan will prove to be an incredible addition to our team and we look forward to further enhancing our retail partnerships through her efforts.”
Holley brings more than 20 years of consumer product sales leadership to Oriental Weavers’ national accounts team. Although experienced in the rug and textile industries, Holley’s breadth of professional sales involvement spans across several industries, allowing her to bring a fresh approach and invaluable insight of best practices utilized by other consumer product leaders.
“I am excited to join the Oriental Weavers team,” Holley said. “Not only have they been a proven industry leader for decades, they are truly customer focused and do what it takes to put their retailer partners’ and consumers’ needs first. That is a special quality and I’m eager to put that to work for my customers.”
