ANDERSON, S.C. — Under its new corporate restructuring and expansion into new market segments, area and accent rug manufacturer Orian Rugs Inc. recently hired two rug industry veterans and one consumer products marketing executive to head its sales and marketing management.
Don Newton has been named senior vice president, sales and marketing, Patrick Noone has been named vice president, sales, and Jan Pourquoi has been named vice president, business development.
While all three posts are newly created, Newton's and Noone's posts together encompass the former vice president of sales and marketing position, which was occupied by Randy Gardner before he left the company recently to join Mohawk Home in a similar job title.
Newton and Pourquoi report to Wim DePape, chief operating officer. Noone reports to Newton.
