September 10, 2009,
Boca Raton, Fla. – Hollander Home Fashions, one of the largest privately-held textile companies in North America, today announced the appointment of Tim Landers as vice president serving as business manager for mattress pads and comforters. In his new position, which is effective immediately, Landers will report directly to chief merchandising officer Beth Mack.
Hollander Home Fashions ceo Chris Baker said, “Tim Landers’ extensive knowledge of textile-specific buying, sales, sales management, marketing, and product management make him the perfect fit for this position. We are excited to welcome him to the Hollander team.”
Landers entered the retail world straight out of college as an assistant buyer at May Company Department Stores. He then spent more than 15 years at Springs Global where he held a series of increasingly demanding roles in both sales and management that culminated in the position of vp of merchandising for the company’s bedding business. Over the past two years, Landers has served as the North American sales director for Welspun USA’s fashion and basic bedding division.
