Kivett joins Charles Craft

Domestic kitchen textiles manufacturer Charles Craft has hired Douglas Kivett as its new national accounts manager.

He replaces Dwayne Ayers, who left the company this past summer to work as a sales representative for a kitchen gadget company.

Most recently, Kivett worked as the national accounts manager for New York-based R-PAC International, a packaging company, for the past five and a half years.

"Charles Craft was a customer of mine in the product identification and packaging industry — for hangtags, bands, barcode printers, thermal printing ribbons, etc. — for approximately 14 years," Kivett told Home Textiles Today.

Prior to that he worked for Paxar Corp., based in White Plains, New York, for eight years as its Southeastern electronics systems specialist/ product manager.

In his new post he concentrates on accounts in the grocery industry. Kivett reports directly to Jerry Surface, vp, sales and marketing.
