FORT LEE, N.J. - Couristan, Inc., a leading manufacturer and importer of indoor and outdoor area rugs, residential broadloom and custom contract carpeting, has promoted Steve Codella to executive vice president of sales.

During his time at Couristan, Codella has "assisted in building a versatile and highly skillful sales force and has consistently contributed to the growth of accounts on all levels," a company press release states. Codella will continue to oversee all residential sales and the strategic advancement of accounts across North America.

I look forward to taking on the challenges this new role will present me with."
