Toronto-based ticking supplier Fine Cotton Factory has added two new territory managers to its sales team.
James Austin handles the east coast of Canada, and Bob Siegel represents the company in the Northeast United States.
Austin, who lives in Amherst, Nova Scotia, has had a long career in textile sales and, most recently, has held a number of posts with fabric and yarn suppliers.
Siegel also brings decades of industrial sales experience to his post, having worked with many companies, including Four Seasons Stitching, Hoover Spring Co., Mountain Top Foam, Value Ticking Co. He is based in New York.
“The addition of our two newest seasoned sales professionals will firmly set Fine Cotton Factory on a solid growth path,” said Skip Kann, director of special projects and business development. “We have a lot of excitement building around our new product initiatives, and our sales team is able to tout the breadth and benefits of our offerings.”
According to a news release, Austin and Siegel join a growing sales team, all of whom report to Kann and were hired within the previous year to serve the company’s growing business. Other members of the team include Quebec-based Ray Brewer; Teresa Lynn, who covers the Western United States; and Doug Owens in North Carolina.
