Tauber will oversee sales, marketing and product development a Poly-Commodity, which imports primarily high-thread sheets and flannel sheets, as well as flannel blankets, pillow shams and bath towels. Tauber said he hopes to tap Poly-Commodity's global network of suppliers to expand the company's product categories.
