Home textiles manufacturer Trident has added four senior level staff members to its New York team. These executives, working in tandem with the brand’s established team in India, give Trident the ability to further its expansion and growth in the North American market.
Trident’s U.S. division is now comprised of three senior level sales and marketing executives, three senior level designers and an operations and logistics specialist. The following personnel joined the Trident team this month:
Luis Hernandez, VP of sales and marketing, brings more than 30 years of experience in the home fashions industry to Trident, previously working for companies such as Loftex, Richloom and Cone Mills.
Jennifer Polikoff, VP of bedding design, has more than 20 years of design and product background in both luxury and moderate home textiles. She previously worked for companies such as Victoria Classics, Kohl’s, Target and Nostalgia Home Fashions.
Carla Grosso, VP of bath design offers a background in bath and fashion bedding, with experience designing as both a manufacturer and a retailer. She previously worked for Createx, Sunvim and Macy’s Merchandising Group.
Jhony Pamnani, director of operations, was hired to fulfill a key new role for Trident as they take the next step in domestic replenishment and e-commerce fulfillment by beginning to warehouse inventory in the U.S. in Q4.
“The addition of these four key members marks a defining moment in the continuing evolution of the Trident Group. Since opening up the U.S. office nearly four years ago, we have been continuously evaluating and improving our approach to serve the U.S. market,” said Jeffrey Kambak, CEO of U.S. operations for the Trident Group. “It’s a complicated task to build a structure to serve an industry that is changing as rapidly as the retail landscape is, but Trident continuously proves that it can take on the challenge.”
