Florence, Ala. — HPS Schönox announced the next steps in its expansion of North American product distribution with the hiring of two key management positions.
Courtney Sturtevant is assuming the position of distributor relations and business development manager, a nationwide role to support the growth of distributors and their business interests. Rex Revard has joined the company as Western region business manager, a position that will focus on Southern California, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico with strategic business development and key customer support.
“Our clear objective at HPS Schönox is to support distributors and customers at every turn from project analysis and product specification through the subfloor preparation process,” said Thomas Trissl, HPS Schönox principal. “Courtney and Rex bring the complementary strengths of product and industry knowledge paired with a firm desire to help customers succeed.”
Most recently, Sturtevant was the director of sales with Raskin Industries and previously held various positions with increasing reach and responsibility all within the flooring sector. She is the third generation in her family to work in the flooring industry, having grown up working in her father’s Santa Cruz, Calif.-based Rainbow Carpet One stores. “At this point in my career, I have been fortunate to work on the retail, wholesale, and manufacturing sides of the industry allowing me to fully understand the opportunities and challenges that customers face,” Sturtevant said. “I was eager to work with Thomas Trissl and the team at HPS Schönox when I saw the commitment level to help customers grow their businesses.”
A commercial project manager for five years in the subfloor product industry and the owner of a contractor business before that, Revard brings a wealth of valuable experience to HPS Schönox. His focus is on helping the customer base to fully understand and implement the breadth of subfloor solutions that the company is bringing to the marketplace that are geared toward saving time and money while delivering better flooring projects with more efficient installation techniques. “I jumped at the chance to join the entrepreneurial excitement at HPS Schönox,” Revard said. “The company has such a fast-paced environment with a clear focus to provide better, more innovative products.”
