PAWTUCKET, R.I. - Braided texture rug and home accessories manufacturer cmi (Colonial Mills Inc.) has hired Kirsten Haynes fulltime as the company's national accounts manager.
     The company described her as having a "successful and energetic sales personality."
     Most recently, Haynes served as a Kentucky and Southern Ohio territory manager for both cmi and Rizzy Home. Last summer, she took on additional responsibilities for cmi by targeting key potential accounts - which cmi said range from brick-and-mortar stores to online retailers and catalogs.
     "Since last July the business of key accounts, especially internet and catalog retailers, has experienced an enormous growth and demand for our rugs and accessories. We found it was time to create another exclusive, fulltime position within our company. Our in-house sales and marketing team collaborated and agreed that Kirsten would be the perfect fit for the position," explained Don Scarlata, cmi's president/ceo. "She is an excellent communicator and understands the needs of her customers. Her enthusiasm and sales knowledge is just what cmi needs to increase sales with these specialty key accounts."
     Haynes in return said she is "really excited for the opportunity to play a key role in growing cmi's business and eager for the challenge. I enjoy building relationships with my customers and working with Meredith Thayer, cmi's in-house product designer, to create the perfect, individualized rug selection for each customer."
