Duban to Head Sales at Covington Fabric and Design

NEW YORK - Covington Fabric & Design has hired Robert Duban as executive vp of sales.
     The 30-year veteran of the home furnishings and contract textile industry was most recently senior vp of sales for The Robert Allen Group. Prior to joining Robert Allen in 2003, he held various sales management positions with F. Schumacher and Decorators' Walk.
     Duban will report to Greg Tarver, Covington's president ceo, who joined CFD from Robert Allen last September.
     "Robert is a highly respected sales executive with a proven track record in both the home fashions and contract markets. He will head our efforts in these areas, and will also manage sales for our export division," said Tarver.
     Tarver continued, "Robert joining us is another example of the commitment to CFD's future by the Kahan and Rifkin families.."
     CFD was established in 2008 when the Kahan and Rifkin families acquired the assets of Covington Industries, which was founded in 1944. In addition to new offices located at 470 Fashion (7th) Ave., New York, NY 10018, CFD maintains a distribution center in Calhoun Falls, SC, and offices in High Point, NC and Haining City, China.
