Dalton, Ga. – Pat Muschamp is retuning to Oriental Weavers after being gone almost a decade, this time to serve as vp of sales.
Muschamp began his sales career in the floor covering industry as a national account sales manager with Oriental Weavers of America in the late 1990s.
Most recently, he served as vp of sales for Nourison, where he spent the past nine years. Muschamp has also worked with Mohawk and Coronet Industries.
“We are extremely pleased to have Pat back in the OW family,” said Michael Riley, president of Oriental Weavers. “We have an aggressive growth strategy involving new product categories and distribution channels. Pat’s vast experience and knowledge of the area rug business will be instrumental to our future efforts.”
