Crossville Promotes Two to Executive VP
Crossville, TN, Oct. 19, 2011 -- Mark Shannon has been promoted to executive vice president of sales and DeWayne Galey has been promoted to executive vice president and chief financial officer at tile maker Crossville.
Shannon's responsibilities have expanded to include the oversight of marketing.
“Our goal,” says John E. Smith, Crossville’s president and CEO, “is to increase synergy between strategic sales and strategic marketing.
Galey's areas of responsibility include finance, IT and the Crossville Tile & Stone distributor locations.
“Galey has been responsible for Crossville Tile & Stone since Crossville opened its first distributor location almost a decade ago,” Smith said.
“However, Crossville Tile & Stone has grown rapidly with the recent acquisition of 10 locations of Master Tile’s Building Products division in Texas and Oklahoma, added to Crossville’s initial acquisition of Master Tile’s Eastern division locations in Central Florida in 2010, plus previously acquired locations in North Carolina and Alabama. Galey will now oversee a total of 21 Crossville Tile & Stone locations, in addition to his Finance and IT responsibilities."
Smith said Crossville's recent expansion has increased Crossville’s product requirements, which has resulted in the need for Vice President of Business Development Frank Douglas to focus on product acquisition, vendor relations and new business development.
