Michelle Rice

KENNESAW, GA.—Invista is welcoming an old friend as Michelle Rice has been hired back to the company’s Surfaces business team as vice president of the retail channel.

In her previous role within the Invista division, Rice was marketing director of the Western region for the company’s residential flooring business. Following that, she was marketing director for Invista intimate apparel and swimwear in Hong Kong. She then pursued an opportunity in Invista commercial development before she transferred to Shanghai, China, where she was the North Asia commercial director for the company’s Lycra fiber.

In Rice’s new role, she will lead Invista’s retail channel team and aligned distribution accounts, which include the Stainmaster Flooring Center Network, Stainmaster Showcase retailers and other aligned channels. Invista regional managers Dan Tharan, Roz White, Vivien Meleen and Bibi Lovell will report to Rice along with Pami Bhullar, director, aligned retail development, and Paul Adamske, national service manager.

This combination will enable us to develop even more effective programs that help improve our retailers’ profitability.”
