Gloster Furniture Restructures U.S. Trade, Contract, and Retail Operations

Tuesday, December 4, 2018

Gloster Furniture is pleased to announce the joint appointments of Pamela Clark and Joseph Batchelor to oversee all U.S. operations. Clark has a 17-year tenure with the organization across departments and will now assume a new role as managing director Gloster America, presiding over the Gloster headquarters in Virginia. Batchelor, a 25-year industry specialist who has worked previously with prolific design leaders, is now director of Gloster America Sales & Marketing Divisions. 

Batchelor’s focus is on strategic business development for all new retail, trade, contract and hospitality channels, including sales oversight, marketing and branding. Clark’s new position integrates manufacturing, CRM, training, personnel development, and general operations. According to Batchelor, “Our business today requires a multi-faceted approach, a need for seamless integration between the product manufacturing, showrooms and customers. We didn’t want the typical management silos that limit our ability to really understand what our workforce, markets, and customer’s are thinking and ultimately demand. As such, we built a model that allows Pamela and I to hone in on our strengths and share responsibility for our overall success.  

Adds Clark, “The speed and agility it takes to be responsive and more engaged with our stakeholders presented an opportunity to create a more malleable structure for collaboration. Our global team provided the insight and support we needed for this, which we believe will be a key factor that will lay an even greater foundation for our growth.” Both directors report directly to group CEO Svend Loevbjerg.
