Taylor Named Sales Director at Protect-A-Bed

 

Expanded Product Line Now Available Directly to Home Furnishings Customers

 

January 11, 2011 - Chris Taylor has been named director of sales of the Furniture Retail Division at Protect-A-Bed®, a premier provider of bedding protection products. In his position, Taylor will oversee the company’s new focus to sell their full line-up of products directly to home furnishings customers.

 

“Protect-A-Bed has a long history of providing mattress protection products to the home furnishings channel, and we’re excited to offer an expanded product line to them,” said Protect-A-Bed CEO James Bell. “We hope that with the addition of Chris, we can expand our leadership and expertise in this industry.”

 

Protect-A-Bed is changing their focus from selling products through distributors to selling directly to their customers. “This not only means that our long-time and new customers will have access to our full line-up of products, they will also have training and support from our award-winning product trainers.”

 

Taylor and his team will work closely with current and prospective customers across the country to educate them on the benefits of creating a healthy sleep zone and protecting their bedding investment. “Consumers are becoming increasingly convinced of the need to protect mattresses and pillows against dust mites, which is a major cause of asthma, allergies and eczema,” Taylor says. “They are also concerned about the recent and growing bed bug infestation issue and are looking for ways to protect themselves.”

 

Prior to joining Protect-A-Bed, Taylor served in a variety of sales and business development roles in the home furnishings industry. In all, Taylor has nearly 15 years of experience in business development and national account management that has resulted in multi-million dollar revenue growth.

 

“Chris has a strong reputation for developing and implementing strategic sales and marketing plans to achieve and exceed sales goals,” Bell said. “He also has a lot of experience managing and directing teams of sales representatives. He is an essential part of our company’s growth and expansion.”

Taylor is a graduate of Wake Forest University where he received a B.A. in communications and a MBA with an emphasis in marketing strategy.

Taylor resides in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
