Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, April 12, 2004
ANDERSON, S.C. — Orian Rugs recently hired Ken Schneider as its national accounts manager, responsible for developing and implementing programs and strategies to grow business.
He replaces Dan Statuto, who left the company in December to work for New York-based Windham Weavers as its vice president of business and product development.
Prior to joining Orian, Schneider worked for Fiskars as national accounts manager to the company's home leisure division.
Schneider reports to Don Newton, senior vice president of sales and marketing.
"Ken's extensive background with large retailers, coupled with his experience in sales management, makes him an extremely valuable asset to the Orian Rugs Team," said Newton.
Orian Rugs is a manufacturer of machine-woven area rugs.
