Newport/Layton taps Tamblyn to grow businesses
September 23, 2004,
PORTLAND, Ore. — As decorative pillow and bedding supplier Newport/Layton Home Fashions grows its window treatment, shower curtain and table linen businesses in an effort to expand its category offerings, the company recently hired Richard Tamblyn to the newly created post of design and marketing director.
He will be in charge of overseeing all design and marketing initiatives for these three product categories.
Prior to joining Newport/Layton, Tamblyn worked at Dan River.
"Our whole motivation here is that these categories represent for us a very small percentage of our total business," Faul said. "If we really want to develop them, we needed someone like (Tamblyn) to devote 100 percent of their time developing them."
