San Diego—DuChâteau has selected Joseph Patterson as its new East Coast regional manager. In his new role, Patterson will oversee the company’s East Coast sales team, working with 11 territory managers as DuChâteau expands into new markets in the eastern United States.
Patterson will be responsible for coaching, training and the developing new incentive programs to drive sales and increase market share in 19 states. He is based in Atlanta and reports to Todd Gates, DuChâteau’s vice president residential sales.
“Joseph has extensive experience managing successful teams in multiple sales channels that will help introduce our new product lines to both commercial and residential customers,” Gates said. “DuChateau started increasing production earlier this year based on growing interest in luxury vinyl products, including in major markets in the east. After our first conversation with Joseph about bigger challenges, we knew his history of success and energy would drive market penetration wherever customers are looking to be at the forefront of emerging style trends.”
Patterson joined DuChâteau in 2016 as a residential territory manager and quickly established himself as key member of the sales team and top performer. Prior to joining DuChâteau, he was a regional sales manager for Armstrong Flooring, where he managed several direct reports and relationships with distributors in the greater Atlanta region, while driving sales in multiple flooring categories.
