Jacobs No Longer at Keeco

Jeff Jacobs, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Keeco LLC, is no longer with the company.

According to Brian Karr, Keeco's chief operating officer, the company's recently appointed national marketing executive, Mike Roach, will handle the marketing component of the former post. “We are evaluating staff functions and don't know whether we'll be hiring a national salesperson to cover those responsibilities,” said Karr.

Jacobs had handled national accounts and mass merchants since joining Keeco in February 2003 and gained added responsibility for department store, specialty and upstairs accounts when predecessor Vincent Tavani left the company in October of last year.

Prior to joining Keeco, Jacobs worked for Mohawk Home as vice president of marketing and before that as vice president of textiles products and sourcing.
