Haws Announces Restructuring of Sales Department

Sales team members will take on new responsibilities

Haws Corporation announced several changes to its sales department designed to better position the company to capitalize on current growth opportunities and to effectively align with its strategic planning.

Tony Caiazzo, formerly western regional sales director since June 2006, will take on the responsibility of director of sales–west. Caiazzo will take on added geographic responsibility while overseeing Haws University. In addition, he will further add valuable support to product development initiatives.

Tom Guile, formerly central regional sales director since January 2007, also will grow his geographic responsibility as director of sales–east and will oversee and enhance the Haws relationship with Affiliated Distributors, the largest wholesale buying and marketing group in North America.

Larry Knight will continue to manage efforts in the government and healthcare segments, but in addition will focus on developing Haws’ growing engineered and total solutions business as he moves from sales director for health care, education and government to director of business development. Knight has been an employee since February 2008.

Sam Sarver, formerly eastern regional sales director since 2005, will continue to drive Haws’ leading line of products in the industrial channel as director of sales–industrial. Sarver has been at the helm as the safety division has thrived and will continue to strengthen new initiatives and strategies for the coming year.

Bob Hanby will be retiring at the end of 2011, but he will continue to manage his responsibilities in Canada and will provide beneficial support to the Brita Hydration Station launch as the director of sales–Canada, market development. Hanby has been a member of the sales team since February 2006.

Michael Chambon is the newest member of the Haws team. For the past six months, he has been a valuable asset to both the marketing and sales departments as the channel consultant for the Brita Hydration Station. Chambon now joins the team full time as the business director–Brita partnership, and he will continue to provide support to Haws product and channel development.
