In this newly created position, Sundet will identify color, style and market trends; oversee strategic new product development; implement new product launches; support product marketing and sales training and promotion. "Ann brings impressive home design credentials to Homecrest and will help to elevate our company to the next level as we sharpen our focus on market-responsive, design-driven strategies," said Christine Meidinger, Homecrest director of sales, marketing and product creation.
