Textile supplier DesleeClama, with North American headquarters in Inman, S.C. and world headquarters in Zonnebeke, Belgium, has hired Anne Pillow as national accounts manager.
Most recently, Pillow, a veteran ticking sales executive, was sales manager for Lava Textiles. Prior to that, Pillow was national account manager for the former Blumenthal Print Works Inc. She began her career with Burlington House Fabrics Group, a division of the former Burlington Industries.
“Anne is yet another example of DesleeClama’s commitment to further strengthen our organization and support our growing customer base,” said Craig Dunlop, president of DesleeClama in North America. “We are extremely fortunate to have Anne join our sales team. Her experience and connectivity, spanning more than 25 years in the industry, will add another dimension to our team and allow us to better service our growing business.”
Pillow reports to Eric Delaby, vice president of sales, and is based in Chicago.
Commenting on her hiring, Pillow said, “Over the last few months I had been hearing a lot about DesleeClama and the major investments they were making to position themselves for continuing growth. That kind of commitment and vision is tremendously motivating to me, so I decided to make the move. Their new design studio, testing laboratory and huge capacity increase are examples of this commitment. I feel very confident that I can contribute significantly to the plans DesleeClama has for this market and I am delighted to be a part of the team.”
