Klein Promoted to Director of National Accounts for GranitiFiandre (posted 1/28/08)

Italian stone and tile manufacturer GranitiFiandre recently announced the promotion of Joy Klein to the position of director of National Accounts, effective January 1, 2008. Klein is charged with oversight of all aspects of the company’s National Account Program for the U.S. Market.

“Joy has shown outstanding leadership and initiative during her tenure with us, and we are excited to promote her to this important role within our operations,” said Jeanne Nichols, vice president for TransCeramica, the sales and marketing arm of GranitiFiandre for the U.S.

Klein has been associated with GranitiFiandre since 1998 and has been promoted to various management positions, including hospitality division manager and national accounts manager. “I am very excited to oversee all aspects of our national accounts, which are such an important part of our business plan,” said Klein. “During the past 10 years, I have been involved in the development of our national account programs and have cultivated a vision of how to take our programs to the next level. With our Italian and U.S.-produced product offerings and U.S. distribution centers, I see no limit to our growth potential, and more importantly, to our ability to meet our customer needs. This new role will allow me to continue to manage and develop the details that make our programs so successful.”

Klein holds a bachelor’s degree in international business, finance and Italian language from Florida State University, and a master’s of business administration degree from the University of South Florida.
