South Sea Wicker and Rattan names director, sales and marketing
March 20, 2008,
Sandra Marion has joined South Sea Wicker and Rattan Furniture Company as director of sales and marketing.
Formerly vice president of Gloster and Cast Craft furniture companies, Marion brings more than 25 years of furniture industry experience to South Sea, which has a 135,000-sq.-ft. facility in Greensboro, N.C. with in-house cushion manufacturing. Founded in 1984, South Sea has a showroom in the Hamilton wing of IHFC in High Point, N.C., and will open a showroom on the 17th floor of the Merchandise Mart in Chicago in August.
“I am very pleased to be with South Sea,” Marion said. “The company has quality, well-designed indoor and outdoor products at affordable price points. In addition, we offer wonderful customer service sales tools, such as a stock availability link tied into our Web site. Our retailers have immediate access to our stock status anytime, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I plan to build on these strengths and broaden our selection of outdoor products.”
