PAWTUCKET, R.I.-Braided rug manufacturer CMI has added Kirsten Haynes as a full-time member of the CMI team, where she will be national accounts manager, a new position.

Haynes most recently served as a Kentucky and Southern Ohio territory manager with both Rizzy Home and CMI. Last summer, Haynes also took on additional responsibilities for CMI by targeting key potential accounts, which ranged from brick-and-mortar stores to online retailers and catalogs.

"Since last July, the business of key accounts, especially Internet and catalog retailers, has experienced an enormous growth and demand for our rugs and accessories," said Don Scarlata, president and CEO. "We found it was time to create another exclusive, full-time position within our company. Our in-house sales and marketing team collaborated and agreed that Kirsten would be the perfect fit for the position. She is an excellent communicator and understands the needs of her customers. Her enthusiasm and sales knowledge is just what CMI needs to increase sales with these specialty key accounts."
