NEW YORK —
Industry veteran Bob Gehm has resigned as vp of bed and bath operations at CHF Industries two years after joining the rapidly growing company.
No successor has been named.
Before his stint at CHF, Gehm had worked at Franco Mfg., where he created the company's Hanes for the Home mass merchant bedding program.
Most of Gehm's long career in home textiles was spent as a sales executive at WestPoint Stevens, where he had worked for 15 years. When he left WestPoint in January 2000, he held down the post of president of sales, and had earlier been president of the mass brands division, heading up all sales and marketing to the nation's mass merchants for what was, at that time, the nation's largest supplier of sheets and towels.
Gehm told HTT he has no immediate plans. "But I'd like to be doing something soon. I really enjoy working. And the funny thing is, despite all the crazy things going on right now, I really love this business."
