Union City, Tenn. — Terry Stewart has been promoted to president of CBK by company chairman Randy Eller.
Eller, who has spent 18 years working at CBK, plans to retire on Feb. 26. CBK is a wholly owned subsidiary of home expressions firm, Blyth, Inc.
Stewart joined CBK as national sales manager in December 2002, with responsibility for overseeing all sales activities. During the past two years, he has taken on increased responsibilities, including product development, marketing and customer service.
Prior to joining CBK, Stewart served for 28 years in a variety of executive sales and management roles with Moore North America, a print and communications company.
The company has chosen Renee Williams to succeed Stewart. In her new role, Williams will be responsible for a sales organization of more than 225 sales representatives and managers.
Williams joins CBK from a division of RR Donnelly, formerly known as Moore North America, where she began her 21-year career as a road representative and was most recently director of sales operations.
The company is placing Stewart in its Franklin, Tenn., office, where the majority of CBK's sales and product development activities take place. Franklin is in close proximity to Union City.
