RAK Porcelain USA Adds Industry Veterans
With the additions of Central District Sales Manager Grace (Peczkowicz) Oliversen and Southeast Sales Manager Pete Dukas, RAK Porcelain USA continues building its sales team here in North America. Since establishing its own U.S. subsidiary in January, RAK Porcelain USA has expanded their product range, increased inventories, and continues to grow its sales organization. Later this month, RAK Porcelain USA will have its own booth for the first time at the upcoming NRA Show.
RAK Porcelain USA President and CEO, Gene Williamson says, “Our product offering here in the U.S. has grown dramatically in recent months and so has our sales organization. We couldn’t be happier that we have two experienced hospitality tabletop professionals like Grace and Pete join us.”
Based in Chicago, Oliversen comes to RAK Porcelain USA from Libbey where she was the lead Account Manager for the Edward Don account. Prior to that, Oliversen spent 7 years with Cardinal Glassware, holding several sales management positions including National Account Manager responsible for the SODEXO, while working directly with the company’s regional rep groups, as well. Oliversen will be responsible for RAK Porcelain USA’s activities in the Northern IL and Southern WI area.
Florida-based Dukas, joins RAK Porcelain USA as Southeast Region Manager, responsible for the Southeastern portion of the U.S. Previously, Dukas held senior management positions with Govino, Dudson China, and Cardinal Glassware.
“We’re excited to add the talents and the experience that both Grace and Pete will bring to our team," says Chip Halpin, RAK Porcelain USA’s vice president of sales. “Their account management skills will insure that RAK Porcelain USA customers will be dealt with on the highly professional level that RAK Porcelain customers worldwide have come to expect.”
