CHICAGO — The Mitchell Group has named Dan Payne national sales manager.

Payne, who reports to Bill Fisch, president, has more than 22 years of sales and marketing experience, including 12 years in sales management. Prior to joining Mitchell, he was national sales manager, residential, for North American textile manufacturer the Victor Group.

"Dan brings strategic sales management experience to Mitchell at a time when we're creatively developing and expanding our line," Fisch said. "His ability to connect with customers and identify opportunities is in keeping with our philosophy. We're thrilled he's joining the Mitchell team."

Payne will be responsible for Mitchell's sales performance, with a goal of increasing market share in its residential and contract-hospitality divisions. Additionally, he will oversee the sales and distribution of an extensive new residential product line, as well as the growth of Mitchell's existing Sta-Kleen and ReCast categories.

Initially, Payne will be based in Newport, R.I., but will eventually relocate his office to the New York metropolitan area.
