Lavatec has appointed Jim Shaw to the executive team as vice president and national accounts aales manager. Well known throughout the commercial laundry industry, he is based in Cincinnati and reports to president Mark Thrasher.
Success has followed Shaw during his 40 years in the industry. In the past 10 years as the president of VEGA Systems USA, he expanded the equipment roster and was involved in the redesign and expansion of product lines to address market needs. The result was an aggressive growth in sales.
This followed a 21-year run as senior vice president at Ellis Corporation USA, where he worked closely with the engineering, sales, parts and service departments to expand the product lines and sales support. He plans a similar mission at Lavatec.
“Mark Thrasher has successfully built Lavatec Laundry Technology in the United States, and it is an organization with a great reputation,” said Shaw. “It is well established with solid equipment, automated technology, and a highly responsive support network. I appreciate being a part of Lavatec.”
