Malouf Home announced it has restructured its sales leadership to support the company’s domestic and international growth. Former Director of Sales Eric Holmstead has been promoted to president, a new position for the company. Eric will work directly with Jesse Gibbs, new vice president of National Sales, and Jeff Holmstead, new vice president of International Sales. The new structure will allow Malouf to bolster future opportunities in the home furnishings industry while furthering relationships with its international partners.
“With Jeff and Jesse transitioning into these new roles, we will keep offering the same service our retailers know and love, and they’ll continue to launch Malouf into new markets and categories,” Eric said. “Jeff and Jesse are both industry experts and have proven their commitment to helping our retail partners succeed. I’m excited to see the impact they will continue to make.”
Jeff Holmstead, former U.S. West District manager, was one of the first salespeople hired by Malouf over eight years ago. He’s watched the sales department grow to over 40 people and has contributed to significant growth in the West District. Prior to joining Malouf, Jeff was manager of a furniture and bedding retail store.
Jeff shared, “We’ve seen more interest from our international retail partners, and I’m looking forward to working more closely with them. With this new sales structure, my job will be focused on international territories and making sure we are capitalizing on the best opportunities and providing the best service to our partners.”
Jesse Gibbs previously worked as the U.S. East District manager for the sales team. In over five years at Malouf, Gibbs has focused on developing strong retailer relationships while promoting effective collaboration across the sales team. Gibbs is a military veteran and former franchise business trainer.
“I’m excited to continue helping our valued retail partners grow their businesses,” Gibbs said. “Malouf has grown very rapidly in recent years. A few big wins for our company include the launch of Salt Flat furniture and the Peak mattress line. Now we’re entering a new phase of growth, and we want to recommit to what got us here: our people-first approach to business.”
The Malouf sales department consists of over 40 in-house team members and 60 outside field representatives that manage more than 6,000 retail partnerships across North America, South America, Asia, Europe and Australia.
