William “Dave” Lepird, Sr. to be Vice President of Business Development
Florence, AL – August 25, 2016 – William “Dave” Lepird, Sr. has joined HPS Schönox as Vice President of Business Development where he will focus on expanding distribution opportunities, growing the company’s presence with key national accounts, and supporting the work of Schönox Regional Business Managers. “Dave’s extensive background in the flooring industry, and the subfloor sector more specifically, will facilitate our strategic steps forward with greater distribution in previously under-represented regions and with national accounts that may not be familiar with Schönox yet,” commented Thomas Trissl, Principal, HPS Schönox. “With all the progress that we have made in a relatively short period of time with Schönox, we still need the greater awareness in certain regions that Dave can provide, especially on the west coast.”
Lepird has worked in the flooring industry for over thirty years with wide ranging experience including that with a flooring distributor, subfloor and flooring manufacturers, and within his own business. “When we talk about the need for our team to have a true 360-degree view of the flooring industry and the project work within it, we are talking about Dave’s level of understanding and experience,” explained Doug Young, Executive Vice President, HPS Schönox.
“HPS Schönox has the feel and enthusiasm of a start-up company, but the advanced product array and technical support base of a sophisticated multi-national enterprise,” commented Lepird. “The fact is that both aspects of the company are true.” Lepird is already traveling extensively throughout high growth regions of the country working with distributors to develop relationships and build greater awareness for the company in under-served regions. “Dave’s enthusiasm and team-building approach are already at work with Schönox helping customers to build their businesses and Schönox to be a part of their success stories,” commented Trissl. “We are delighted to have him on board at Schönox.”
