Brandon Collins was hired to the new post vice president of e-commerce. Eric Jent has joined as vice president of sales. Craig Walter was named director of hospitality sales, also a new position for the company. All three report to Chris Baker, Corsicana chief executive officer.
Collins most recently was chief revenue officer of White Shark Media. He is responsible for overseeing the growth and management of all aspects of Corsicana’s e-commerce business, including the development and execution of its e-commerce sales and marketing strategy.
Jent previously was executive vice president of sales for Sheex Inc. He has more than 20 years of experience in the bedding industry, including executive sales management positions for Ashley Furniture, King Koil and Simmons Bedding.
Jent and Clint Walling, also a vice president of sales who has been with the company since 2011, are responsible for leading the sales organization with a focus on improving overall customer experience and executing a sales expansion strategy and go-to-market plans for future product offerings.
Prior to joining Corsicana, Walter led hospitality sales for Downlite, a national manufacturer of bedding products.
Commenting on the new hires, Baker said: “Adding Eric, Brandon and Craig to the team strengthens the company’s leadership position in the industry and is part of an ongoing strategy to expand our market share while solidifying our commitment to provide outstanding support and service to all of our customers.”
