Carole Sloan -- Casual Living, November 18, 2010
Pride Family Brands, manufacturer of high quality aluminum casual furniture, announces the addition of two independent sales representatives, Matt Kotoski and Rob Quello.
Kotoski and Quello bring more than 30 years of sales experience as they join Pride's national network of sales personnel representing the manufacturer's Castelle, Prestige and SummerWinds lines.
"Our product lines are well represented by a quality group of sales representatives," said Jamie Lowsky, CEO of Pride Family Brands, headquartered in Hollywood, FL. "With the addition of Matt and Rob, our representation is further enhanced in the key areas of New England and the Pacific Northwest."
Kotoski brings more than 22 years of experience as a sales representative in the outdoor business arena. Covering the New England area including casual retailers in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont and Maine, Kotoski began his association with Pride Family Brands prior to the casual premarket in July. In addition to the products manufactured by Pride, Kotoski also represents additional furniture and outdoor accessory companies to the same region.
Since August, Quello has represented Pride Family Brands to specialty retailers within Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Western Canada. Quello, an eight-year veteran of the casual industry, hails from a family with more than 50 years of experience in the outdoor living segment. His representation of various outdoor living products had garnered him "salesperson of the year" designation for numerous lines. Quello holds an engineering degree from both Pacific Lutheran University and Washington State.
"We are proud, not only of the addition of Matt and Rob, but of the entire sales force and the team that we have been able to assemble to represent our products," said Rory Rehmert, vice president of sales and marketing for Pride Family Brands. "The importance and value of professional representation cannot be underestimated in the current economic landscape."
