Wright Global Graphics promoted Kim Grubb to vice president of mattress division sales as part of the company’s strategic plan to deepen and strengthen its sales force. Designed to offer a higher level of expertise to a consolidating industry, the restructuring is a direct effort WGG has strategically implemented to better serve its customers and growing product offerings in the mattress sector.
Grubb joined WGG in 1988 as an administrative assistant and rose steadily through ranks into sales and then account management where she was responsible for working closely with existing clients and managing large teams. In her new role, Kim will oversee all sales efforts in the mattress market segment, managing a team of account executives, customer service associates, artists, project managers and two new members to the WGG sales team, Melonia Stockner and Spencer Lineback.
“Kim Grubb has been a part of the Wright family for over 25 years and has played an important role in our company’s growth. This promotion is part of an aggressive campaign to bring more depth to our sales team, allowing for greater delegation, enhanced client services and increased expertise that will ultimately produce a superior product unique to each customer. It also recognizes her wealth of knowledge and dedication to the bedding industry,” said Senior Vice President of Business Development & Chairman of the Board Don Wright. “We continue to see growth opportunities in the home furnishings industry – especially with the mattress manufacturers. More and more companies are looking for innovative branding solutions, such as top-of-bed, mobile marketing, and interactive POP, to promote product on a retail showroom floor.”
Stockner, an industry veteran, has held an array of sales and marketing positions at Sealy over the past 13 years; more recently key account manager and team leader for the Florida and Texas regions. A former customer of Wright Global Graphics, Stockner joins the team as an account executive and will be responsible for the company’s Tempur-Sealy account. Lineback joined the WGG sales team in 2013, working on accounts across several of the company’s business units. In his new role, he will focus on sales to independent mattress manufacturers located in the eastern U.S. and Canada.
