Boca Raton, Fla. – Basic bedding and pillow manufacturer Hollander Home Fashions has promoted two executives: Beth Mack from svp of the basic bedding division to chief merchandising officer (cmo); and Amy Webster from vp of the down comforter division to vp for the pillow division.
Reporting directly to David Sides, president, Mack will guide strategy, design, marketing, and category management for products Hollander manufactures and markets under its own label, and for its licensed and private label programs.
Jeff Hollander, ceo, noted that Mack “is a proven leader and industry veteran who brings extensive experience in product development and operations to this newly-created and critically important position.”
With Hollander for 12 years, Mack had prior sales experience at Dawson, now part of Springs Global, and at Pillowtex.
Webster will now oversee the leading volume unit of Hollander, and will report to Mack. “Amy’s superior knowledge of the retail environment has been critical in our recent growth,” said Hollander. Webster’s former position in the down comforter area is now open.
Prior to joining Hollander in 2005, Webster was a product manager for private label basic bedding and table linens at Saks Department Store Group. She also served as associate product manager for the company’s soft home division.
