Florence, Ala.—Todd Gates has joined HPS Schönox as vice president of sales and business development for the Western United States. In his new role, Gates will be responsible for furthering the development of distribution and support opportunities for Schönox across one of the fastest growing mega regions for the company.
Gates was most recently with Karndean as vice president in charge of sales, distribution, exports and technical support and served on the executive management board. Before his 19-year tenure with Karndean, Gates worked in a variety of management positions in the building services, commercial and retail flooring sectors.
“Todd’s extensive experience in the LVT flooring sector pairs so well with our Schönox products which are ideal for use with the resilient category and others where subfloor preparation is even more critical to installation success,” said Doug Young, executive vice president, HPS Schönox.
