Troy, N.C. - Capel Rugs has appointed Dave Calderwood to fill the regional sales manager post for the company's Midwest marketing area.

Calderwood comes to Capel from the retail side of the business, having most recently served as manager of area rug sales for a large Ohio furniture retailer. Earlier, he was a sales and product developer for a large importer of hand-knotted and tufted rugs.

Capel noted that Calderwood has been recognized as "one of the area rug industry's best sales trainers. His knowledge of retail and wholesale markets will help him advance Capel's national dealer business."

Added Allen Robertson, vp, sales: "Dave's skills as sales person, combined with his experience as a sales trainer, make him a unique and valuable addition to the Capel team. We are excited to now offer dealers in the Midwest region even greater support as Dave helps them increase their sales."

Calderwood is based in Akron, Ohio, and is charged with managing Capel's sales in the six-state region that includes Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania.
