LONDON–OW Hospitality today announced the appointment of Jonathan Young, formerly of Brintons Carpets, as the director of global sales for the company.
Young will be tasked with leading the sales effort worldwide for OW Hospitality as it continues its aggressive expansion plans in the hospitality carpet segment. Young’s experience in hospitality dates back more than 30 years and he has worked in key positions for such companies as Milliken in both the USA and international markets, and most recently as CEO of Brintons U.S. Axminster Inc. Young will be based in the company’s U.S. office.
“As Oriental Weavers Group has committed major resources to the growth in this sector of [our] business, it was evident that we needed an industry leader to provide complimentary strategic vision and leadership for the company’s efforts,” said Michael Riley, CEO & Managing Director of OW Hospitality. Jonathan Young was the first candidate that even came to mind and we are very lucky that he shared the vision of the opportunity for OWH in the hospitality business and knows how to build a first rate sales team.”
