Troy, N.C. —
Four-generation family owned and operated rug supplier Capel Inc. has officially appointed Bruce Hric as its president and ceo -- conjoined posts he has held on an interim basis for the past 14 months.
"The future of Capel is in good hands with this promotion," said Jesse Capel, director and owner of the company. Capel's board of directors announced that Hric's promotion would be effective Dec. 1.
Hric, who has been with Capel for the past nine years, most recently focused on product development, strengthening key industry relationships and reinvigorating Capel's braided rug manufacturing efforts.
"I am looking forward to taking on the challenges of today's industry and building on Capel's 90 years of stellar performance," Hric said.
Before Capel, Hric served as a vp of Koury Corporation for 13 years, vp of finance and administration for Interline Furniture for two years, and worked with Flynt Fabrics for eight years.
