Hollander Home Fashions announced last week the promotion of two of its executives, Beth Mack and Craig Edwards.

"Beth has added significant value to Hollander over the years with her depth of industry knowledge and expertise," said Leo Hollander, chairman and ceo. "As senior vp of pillows, Beth's expanded responsibilities will ensure the continued production of innovative and quality pillows that provide added comfort and value for our customers."
Edwards has been promoted to senior vp of sales from his former position of vp. He is responsible for the Wal-Mart accounts in the United States, Korea and Mexico as well as the Sam's Club Accounts in the U.S., Mexico and Puerto Rico. He also leads Hollander's team working with Wal-Mart Global to expand products worldwide.
"Under Craig's direction, we have seen significant growth of all Hollander-manufactured products at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club," said Jeff Hollander, president. "The sustained growth of sales internationally, particularly in Latin America, will be a primary focus for Craig as the senior vp of sales."
In their newly created positions, Mack and Edwards both report to David Sides, president of the basic bedding division.
