Marketing services provider Wright Global Graphic Solutions in Thomasville, N.C., has named Pat Flippin director of international business development, a newly created position.

He is responsible for increasing overseas sales—with a focus on Southeast Asia and the Middle East—and expanding the company’s reputation as a global packaging and marketing solutions provider.

Flippin is a mattress industry veteran with a long tenure at manufacturer Kingsdown. He began there in 1986 as regional operations and plant manager and rose to become Kingsdown’s president and chief operating officer—a position he held from 2001 to 2010.

In addition to his contract work for Wright, Flippin serves as president of North and South American operations for Global Sourcing Solutions USA Asia.

“We are excited to embrace Pat as part of the Wright Global Graphic Solutions family,” said Ron Wright, senior vice president of international operations. “Our international business has been growing at a steady pace over the last several years and we recognized the need for a seasoned executive to help us implement our corporate vision in Asia and the Middle East. Pat is a well-known and respected leader in the sleep products industry and has made strong connections with numerous international contractors. We know these relationships will play an integral role in our company’s strategic growth plan, especially overseas.”
