Sunpan Announces Pivotal Leadership Appointment
Matthew Baker has joined furniture manufacturer Sunpan to spearhead operations at the company’s newly-built Texas warehouse.
“We are thrilled to welcome Matt,” says Sunpan president and CEO Sundeep Bagga. “His positive attitude, dedication and strong skillset will be monumental in better serving our customers across the United States.”
In his role as operations and warehouse manager for the 200,000-square-foot facility, Baker will manage the day-to-day operations to ensure all U.S. orders are fulfilled efficiently and smoothly.
The facility, located east of Houston in Baytown, is set to open in the coming weeks. Built to enhance the company’s expansion in the U.S., it will allow for more in-stock inventory, faster shipments and the option for American customers to pick up orders directly from the warehouse.
“Matt’s involvement in this new operation will change the way we do business tremendously,” says the company’s vice-president of sales, Carl Lovett. “Having a warehouse that is local to a large portion of our customers will transform the way they shop and engage with Sunpan.”
Headquartered in Toronto, Sunpan specializes in transitional and contemporary furnishings. The trade-only business sells exclusively to furniture retailers, interior design firms and other members of the design trade.
