Gehm Named Top Sales Exec at River Road

New York — River Road has named former Sheridan U.S.A. President Robert Gehm, as its new executive vice president of sales, effective immediately.

The company is also opening a new showroom next month on the 16th floor of 295 Fifth Avenue since “increased sales and growing product lines have necessitated the need for a permanent space,” according to company executives.

“Being able to showcase River Road's new and existing product lines will enhance our ability to work with customers not only during market weeks but throughout the year,” described David Stewart, River Road president and CEO.

“We are thrilled to have someone of Robert's experience join our team. His drive and enthusiasm are valuable assets to River Road,” said Stewart. “With Robert focusing on sales and managing the sales group, other members of the RR team are now able to concentrate on new product development and customer service.”
