Kilbride implements staff changes
April 29, 2002,
Initiated by the departure of Patrick Moyer from his post at Mohawk Home as vp, marketing to become the president of U.S. operations for Belgian floor covering company Balta, Mohawk Home president Bill Kilbride has made some staff changes.
Jeff Jacobs, who was vp and product manager for textiles, will now replace Moyer.
"Jeff came to us in our acquisition of Crown Crafts two years ago as vp of marketing, so his new post is a job he'll be familiar with," said Kilbride, to whom Jacobs will report.
Replacing Jacobs in his former post will be Bart Hill with the new title of general manager of textiles. For Hill, who was most recently area rug product manager, the new position is a promotion.
A replacement for Hill has not yet been appointed.
"We'll probably promote internally for his old job, but not yet," Kilbride said. "We will fill it as soon as it's practical for us to do so."
Hill now reports directly to Rocky Casteel, vp of area rugs and textiles.
