Jones Nonwovens, a division of the Humboldt, Tennessee-based Jones Family of Companies, has named industry veteran Dennis St. Louis to the new post of senior sales director for the Eastern United States.
Previously, St. Louis was vice president of business development and national accounts for mattress fabric supplier Creative Ticking Inc., a division of Beverly Knits, with headquarters in Gastonia, North Carolina.
In his new position, St. Louis is responsible for business development on the East Coast. He reports to Andrew Dailey, senior vice president of sales and business development.
Commenting on the new post, Dailey said: “After much internal discussion and strategic planning, we have added this new position to complement our sales service and support on the West Coast headed up by Doug Gillespie. It was evident that in order to continue to provide high-quality service to our current customers and target growth and expansion across new businesses, we had to invest in our sales organization. Dennis’ solid background in the textile industry makes him a great addition to the Jones team.”
St. Louis said: “I am excited to join Jones Nonwovens and start contributing. The culture, leadership and management team at Jones stood out to me, as they are positioning the company for continued growth by providing excellent products, services and added value to our customers.”
