PMI’s STANLEY Brand Expands Sales Team to Support Strong Growth


SEATTLE, WA (June 2, 2015) – As PMI’s Stanley brand continues to experience tremendous growth, the company is pleased to announce the addition of several new key hires on the sales team. With the addition of new team members, PMI has also assigned new responsibilities and roles for existing employees.

Dustin Woods joins PMI as the new STANLEY brand North America Director of Sales. Most recently Director of Sales at Swarovski Optik, Woods has extensive experience building partnerships with retailers, developing a highly successful sales team, and driving brand and business growth. In his new role Woods will manage all of the STANLEY brand’s specialty channels in the US and Canada. “Dustin’s strategic leadership, energy and passion make him a perfect fit to lead our team in North America,” says Kelly Kraus, Vice President of PMI’s STANLEY brand.

“I am honored to be joining the Stanley and PMI family. Stanley is such an iconic brand that really connects with our customers. The company is growing at an exceptional rate and there is a great energy in the market for the Stanley brand. I am very excited to be joining the world class team at Stanley and PMI,” says Woods.

Van Schoessler and Jeff Greto have been appointed as Central and Western Regional Sales Managers, respectively. “Van and Jeff have been instrumental in building the STANLEY brand business and their tenure with the company will be vital in their new roles managing our largest regions. Matt Gormley is now in a new role as our Hardware Channel Sales Manager, and we’ll also continue to rely heavily on Neil Burch’s sales leadership to grow the business in his critical role as VP of Business Development,” continues Kraus.

Rounding out the new hires are the appointment of two top sales rep groups – Alec Meszaros & Associates will service New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Washington DC markets. The Sullivan-Bishop Group will oversee Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, and Louisiana. “The success of PMI’s STANLEY business can be attributed in large part to the people we have working on the brand’s behalf. We couldn’t ask for better reps to join the family than the Sullivan-Bishop and the Alec Meszaros & Associates teams,” adds Kraus.
