Sales TeamJacksonville Fla.—Cain & Bultman, a flooring distributor located here, added to its sales team, which the company said is to focus on growth in Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina.

“Several leading manufacturers have entrusted us with representing them in Florida, Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina,” said Kirk Sandifer, CEO. “This meets our long-term goal of aggressively growing our footprint. In fact, our director of credit, Marshall Konency, said we have built relationships with 800 new customers since January. It’s an exciting time to be part of Cain & Bultman’s future.”

The new hires are as follows:

Rick Horne joins as business development manager, metro Atlanta/North Georgia. Horne was previously president, RA Siegel and vice president, sales, Gilford Johnson.

“Rick brings an impressive resume to Cain & Bultman,” said John Neugent, director of sales. “With his 40 years of experience and relationships, we are fortunate to have someone of Rick’s caliber help us build market share. Rick will be an enormous asset to Cain & Bultman bringing his knowledge, high energy and sales leadership.”

Greg Walton is now territory manager for upstate South Carolina. Walton was previously territory manager for Tarkett and Bedrosians. Walton’s extensive knowledge of hard surface flooring and the South Carolina marketplace was a natural fit for Cain & Bultman, the company said.

“One of the people who referred Greg to us said he was the finest representative they had ever worked with,” said Shawn Moloney, vice president, residential.

Shahn Hall takes over as territory manager for south metro Atlanta into Birmingham Ala. Hall is well suited to represent and grow the company’s brands and provide an elevated level of service to our customer base, the company said.

“I’ve known Shahn for years and was impressed with his deep experience managing logistics for Gilford Johnson,” Neugent shared.

Bill Scoggins fills the commercial territory manager role for Atlanta. “Bill is a fixture in metro Atlanta having represented Tarkett commercial over 30 years,” said Burton Williams, vice president, commercial. Bill’s customers are so happy he will continue the tradition with us.”

Blair Gornto is territory manager for lower Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. “We love Blair’s commitment to his civic and armed forces responsibilities. His addition to the Cain & Bultman family makes us optimistic about our future,” Neugent stated. “We are confident Blair will propel Cain & Bultman to the next level in growing our Alabama and Florida panhandle business.

Neugent added, “We are pleased to announce David Smith will add North Alabama to his current responsibilities. He has been the backbone of our company in Atlanta for 15 years.”
