Industry supplier Latexco U.S. Holdings LLC, with headquarters in Lavonia, Georgia, has hired two seasoned sales professionals, Scott Charest and Tina Hart, as account managers.
Joining Latexco, Charest represents two leaders in their respective industries, CT Nassau and Milliken FR Products. Prior to that, he was the Northeast sales representative for former DesleeClama North America. He also gained hands-on knowledge of the manufacturing process through 21 years as owner and operator of a metal finishing company that served customers in the aerospace, automotive, defense and textile machinery industries.
An industry veteran of 17 years, Hart most recently was central region director of sales for Talalay Global in the components segment. Before that, she was at Sealy, where she started in the mattress industry as a retail sales specialist and progressed to the role of North American sales manager, launching the U.S.-based Sapsa Latex facility in 2007.
The company said in a news release that the appointments are in preparation for expansion and a push for strong growth. Both report to Brent Limer, chief sales officer for Latexco U.S.
“The experience and individual skill sets that Tina and Scott bring to their roles are valuable assets to Latexco and our customers,” Limer said. “Their expertise represents each step of our business from procurement of raw materials and manufacturing through quality control and sales.”
