Deerfield Beach, Fla.—Carlos Franco has joined Raskin Industries as regional sales manager. He will cover specific distribution territories in the country including, but not limited to, Florida and the surrounding region in addition to Latin America and the Caribbean.

In this new role, Franco will help to grow Raskin’s client base and assist in maintaining the company’s established relationships. He will be integral in communicating Raskin’s corporate message in the marketplace, and promoting and selling new and existing products.

With a career history in sales, Franco has worked in various design-related industries.
