New York – Safavieh has appointed Hugh Riley to the newly created position of Northwest territory manager.
Based in Seattle, Riley is the company’s first locally-based sales manager. He is assigned to serve the markets of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Wyoming in the United States; and British Columbia, Manitoba, Alberta, and Saskatchewan in Canada.
For the past seven years he worked for Nourison, serving West Coast-based national accounts. Earlier, he spent 13 years of his career working in home furnishings retailing.
