Thomaston Mills Moves Sales And Marketing Management To Georgia

THOMASTON, Ga., March 22 /PRNewswire/ --Thomaston Mills (OTC Bulletin Board: TMSTA TMSTB)has made severalorganizational moves to insure the future success for both its customers andsuppliers. In following the course taken over the past few years by manymajor textile organizations, Thomaston Mills will relocate its entiremanagement team except for design to the Company's headquarters in Georgia. Under the direction of recently appointed President/CEO William Ott, whosucceeded Neil Hightower upon his resignation last month, the Company willmove its sales and marketing arm out of New York to Georgia. "We are certainly aware of the success our competitors have enjoyed bygetting everyone geographically aligned," stated Ott. "The ability to haveeveryone together under one roof will help us communicate more effectively andbe far more efficient." As a result, Robert Dale, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, has leftthe Company. "Bob has served our company extremely well during his tenure,and we certainly wish him and his family all of the best." Reporting to Ott in the capacity of sales management will be two long-timeThomaston Mills' managers, Steve McGee, who has been appointed to VicePresident of Retail Sales and Bill Hightower, who will hold the position ofVice President of Institutional Sales. Previously, each had held the positionof business manager working from Georgia and reporting to Dale in New York. While Ott has made the decision to emulate his competitors, he does noteone significant change, "We feel that the design area needs to remain in NewYork where our people have immediate access to trends, suppliers andinspiration that is simply not available to them otherwise." Patricia Feiwel,who recently joined Thomaston Mills from Pillowtex as Design Director, willremain in New York with her staff and will report to Ott. "I am committed to remaining at 111 W. 40th Street as a place for ourshowroom and design department," Ott explained. "We have a beautiful showroomin a great location. Patricia and her staff have done an incredible job inher short time with us. When customers see our line, they won't believethey're in the Thomaston showroom. We just look great!"
