Mattress maker E.S. Kluft & Co., which is owned by Spain’s Flex Group, has added Tim Bullin, Richard Harrison and Denise Mettner to its sales team.
Bullin covers a Southern California sales territory for the Rancho Cucamonga, California-based company’s Aireloom brand. He reports to Howard Galant, Western regional vice president.
Before joining Kluft, Bullin was an account manager with Heritage Home Group, representing the Broyhill, Lane and Thomasville brands. He has more than two decades in home furnishings sales for a number of manufacturers.
“We’re continuing to grow our retail network and Tim’s appointment is a key component to our strategy,” Galant said. “We’re happy to have him in our organization.”
Harrison joins as a key account executive for the Pacific Northwest territory. Most recently, he was national account manager with Canada’s Restwell Sleep Products. Prior to that, he spent more than a quarter century with retailer The Brick, where he last served as general sales manager.
Mettner was hired as a national accounts representative for the Midwest, working with Bloomingdale’s, Hudson Bay Co. and Macy’s. She has more than 30 years of experience in retail and wholesale bedding, and home furnishings sales. Most recently, she worked for Dormeo. Other past employers include Montgomery Ward, JCPenney and Serta.
Both Harrison and Mettner report to Vice President of Sales Dominick Azevedo, who said this about their hiring: “As our business expands with larger national accounts, we are adding seasoned professionals with significant experience to bring more value to our relationships with these retailers. Both Denise and Richard are great additions to our growing national accounts team.”
