River Road taps Gehm to head sales

NEW YORK River Road has retained Robert Gehm as its new executive vice president of sales, effective immediately.

Gehm was formerly president of Sheridan U.S.A. “We are thrilled to have someone of Robert’s experience join our team,” said David Stewart, River Road president and ceo. “With Robert focusing on sales and managing the sales group, other members of the RR team are now able to concentrate on new product development and customer service.”

The company is also opening a new showroom next month on the 16th floor of 295 Fifth Avenue to answer the need for a permanent space. “Being able to showcase River Road ’s new and existing product lines will enhance our ability to work with customers not only during market weeks but throughout the year,” enthused Stewart.
