Pillowtex realigns sales organization
January 24, 2003,
New York — Barely a week after executive vp Scott Shimizu announced his pending departure, Pillowtex Corp. yesterday realigned its sales team by customer group, rather than geographic region.
Greg Williams, Dave Lueder and Margie Donovan have been appointed group vice presidents, each responsible for specific retail customers. Prior to their promotions, they were vps and regional sales managers.
According to Pillowtex, the moves were worked on and planned by Shimizu and Gannaway prior to Shimizu's resignation. Shimizu had announced he'd be leaving the company today.
