J.R. United appoints 20-year industry veteran to vp of sales

Miami – Bedding, bath and kitchen textiles supplier J.R. United recently appointed Kevin Enders as its vp of sales.

A 20-year veteran of the retail and wholesale segments of the home textiles industry, Enders most recently founded and operated his own young men’s denim brand and private label athletic apparel line.

Prior to that, he held several top executive posts at Foot Locker Inc. in New York City.

And before that, from 1989 to 1998, he spent nine years working for now-defunct May Co., where he held many positions – including buyer of decorative home and gift housewares.

Now based in South Florida, Enders is charged with managing all of the company’s retail accounts and product categories.

He reports to Salo Grosfeld, president and ceo, who said Enders’ brings “an extensive retail background that helps us understand what retailers in today’s tough environment are going through so that we can create the right product and offer the right service to them.”
