Creswell Richardson announced staffing changes in what the Chattanooga-based industrial distribution company says will be a trend of growth and progress in coming months. Staff moves include Everett Ford and Justin Davis to iInside sales; Anita Spandau to warehouse and shipping manager; and Lisa Swope to communications coordinator.
“With the recent and anticipated growth of Creswell Richardson, we needed to adjust our team to meet the needs of the changing market place,” said General Manager Steve Lewis, who joined the company in January.
“This restructuring of staff reflects the needs of our customer base," said CEO Rob Creswell. "We will continue to rise to meet these needs. This is an ongoing process, and our goal is to work diligently to give more than our customers expect and supply quality merchandise when or before needed.”
Creswell Richardson has also hired IT Manager Justin Blanchard.
“I hope to bring what I have learned to Creswell Richardson, to help the company to grow as I continue to do so myself,” said Mr. Blanchard, who has several years’ experience in systems administration and IT management in southeast Georgia, from where he moved to join the Creswell team in Chattanooga.
“The demand for accurate and timely information along with the expansion of Creswell Richardson in the marketplace drove the search for an individual who has the key attitudes, aptitudes, and experience to manage our technology growth and improvement,” said Mr. Lewis. “Justin met all of these needs, and he and his family will be a tremendous addition to the Creswell family and the Chattanooga community.”
